There are many times during finishing where a typeholder for single type pieces comes much handier than the standard sized ones used for whole words. For example when a single letter hasn’t been tooled as clearly as the rest and needs to be retooled, in certain decorations where the occasion calls for tooling letters individually and especially when the title is arranged vertically on the spine.
In such cases this kind of typeholder allows greater control -being lighter and smaller- and better visibility.
The typeholder offered here is made out of solid cast brass. The upper sides, the ones a binder sees while tooling, form a rounded corner which by the end of the tool declines as much as possible to further enhance line of sight.
The moving part incorporated in the design enables this typeholder to receive a wide range of type sizes from really small (f.e. 6) to big ones (f.e. 36) and holds the type down firmly with a twist of the screw.
The price of the typeholder is 130euro
