Brass Type for Hot Foil, Bookbinding, etc.
« on: February 23, 2013, 02:52:08 PM »
I'm pleased to say that work on renovating the Adana 8X5 hot foil press is now nearly complete.

Many thanks to Mike Jacobs, an expert in the hot foil process, for contacting me outside the forum with some excellent advice.

Hopefully I'll be posting some video of the machine in action in the near future.

I noticed this brass type on Ebay, which is most suitable for hot foil, bit beyond my price range, though!
