A nicely full case of 72pt Centaur. Keep your eyes peeled if you’d like some of your own- I’m going to be casting some over the next few months (other busy-ness permitting)

As you cast display type on a Super Caster, you have to make various adjustments as the set (width) of the character changes. Some of them you do by experience and feel (like the duplex spring pressure, water flow, plunger spring pressure) and some are are non-negotiable. To reduce the amount of thinking required when casting, I put these little inserts into the box of display mats, to remind me to make specific changes.
