The Linotype Parts Company, which adopted a "Star" as its trademark, was the largest independent maker of Linotype and Intertype compatible parts. They later renamed themselves "Star Parts" after their trademark, and are best known as Star Parts by the last generation of Linotype machinists.
"Form" Series Index
The distinction between a "major" and a "minor" product is of course entirely subjective. The "minor" products here tend to be individual parts or attachments for the machines. The "major" products below tend to be complete systems or complex subsystems (such as the Quadders) or well-known standalone devices (such as the Matrix Repair Tool).
Also M-44 Microstat controller.

The first Star quadder of which I have evidence was introduced in 1949. This evolved into a range of quadders (there was no single "Star Quadder") for various purposes. This Notebook collects Operator's Manuals, Maintenance Manuals, and Parts Catalogs for various models, as well as some advertising and catalog material.
