I thought this might be somewhat enlightening. I had the opportunity to mess a bit with the Intertype down at Tampa U. last year. This Linotype machine is quite similar in basic concept and design.
You will have to look quite hard to find a mechanical wonder quite the equal to a Linotype or Intertype linecaster. Jim briefly mentions Edison's perspective of the complexity of these machines.
Hope you enjoyed the video!
