This is a badly (by me) image-processed composite of scans of halftone images of very nice continuous-tone wash drawings of original Thompson Type-Caster hand tools, taken from Instructions for Operating the Thompson Type Caster. (Chicago: Thompson Type Machine Company, 1925). I'm leaving off the larger version of the image here; you're best off looking at the digitization of the catalog in Thompson Type-Caster Source Material (An Anthology).
