Linotype Metal Feeder

1. Introduction

I don't have much information on this feeder yet. It is unusual in that it does not suspend the ingot above the pot on a chain, as most feeders do. It also appears to require notched ingots cast in a special mold. It is shown in Linotype Catalog No. 27, Special Supplies Catalog (1936), but not in Catalog No. 56 or in the Linotype parts books.

2. From Linotype Catalog No. 27 (1936)

From the Mergenthaler Linotype Company's "Catalog No. 27" Special Supplies Catalog, from 1936. (Printing code: 741.271-E-O-27X)
