Super Quality Steel Type

Call for quote.
Numberall's steel type is engraved for accuracy, strength, and alignment. Made of high grade tool steel, the type is precision heat-treated for severe usage. The thickness of standard super quality steel type is equivalent to the character size (except 1/32″ type). For example, 1/8″ characters are engraved on blanks that are 1/8″ wide making 8 pieces of 1/8″ type 1″ long. However, condensed or extra-condensed characters are available to shorten space requirements. Other character styles may require extra wide blanks. Numberall also manufactures type to custom dimensions. The above characteristics of our standard type hold true for custom type. Please contact us for a consultation.

Description

Compatibility
Standard stocked steel type is notched to be used in Numberall’s Model 22, Model 23, and Model 24 Type Holders. The notch also serves as a locating mark for proper character orientation in holders where a set screw is used instead of a type retaining pin.
