This is a photograph of a piece of 120 point type cast at the 2010 ATF conference in Piqua, Ohio. It was cast from a matrix CNC-milled by Mel Arndt of Toledo, Ohio using a 120 point bench-mounted handcasting mold owned by our host, Gregory J. Walters. Greg Walters later printed a keepsake from a type that he had cast during this session - and it printed beautifully.
The type shown here is the one that I cast. It did not turn out perfectly, as is apparent - the fault is with my casting technique, not with Mel's matrix or Greg's mold. The type as shown is (correctly) wrong-reading; note that Mel engraved non-printing text which would cast right-reading on the shoulder of the type.
