Intertype Models

Most of the following illustrations and model descriptions were taken from "Intertype Book of Instruction" published by the Intertype Corporation in 1943, with the exception of Models A, B and C which were talen from a pamphlet entitled "Standardized and Interchangeable Intertypes" which it is believed was published in 1917.

Model A

Model A

INTERTYPE Model A is the highest development in the field of single-magazine composing machines.

It is as far superior to earlier machines of its class as a modern automobile is superior to the cars brought out several years ago.

While the Model A carries only one magazine, it is so well provided with quick-change devices that a wide range of work can be handled efficiently on it.

Magazines are easily removed and exchanged at the back of the machine, and are interchangeable with the magazines used on all other Intertype models.

Like all other Intertypes, the Model A sets faces from 5 to 42 point in size, in 4 to 30 em measures.

It carries all the Intertype improvements and simplifications, with the exception of the solid blade universal ejector, which is applied for $100 extra.

As it is a standardized Intertype, the Model A can at any time be converted into a Model B two-magazine or Model C three-magazine machine.
