Machine manufactured for the production of high-quality hand-set display type. The advantages are high letter quality and excellent intercharacter spacing; the disadvantage is that only one line can be set at a time, so a lot of pasteup is necessary. Also, each letter must be individually positioned by the operator, making it time-consuming and expensive.
