Above is photograph of Sky Shipley of Skyline Type Foundry emptying the Melting Pot of a Thompson at the 2009 combined APA Wayzgoose and Midwest & Great Northern Printers' Fair. Below, Sky is pouring the typemetal into small ingot molds. The reason for emptying the Thompson Melting Pot, in this case, is that it makes the machine much easier to move. Sky has just finished casting 52 fonts of Hadriano Stone Cut, 24pt, and is taking the machine back to his foundry. Photos by Jenny Addison, Prop., Lock & Key Press.
