Hot Metal

Linecasting Machinery is able to fulfill an obligation that we feel we have to the hot-metal industry in order to keep it running, not just as a traditional ‘Cottage Industry’, but as a truly commercial enterprise.

We have been involved with Intertype and Linotype machines since we were founded in 1962. Although we have now diversified into other areas of the printing industry we are recognized as the only company in the UK who are still able to supply machines, spare parts, removals, servicing, breakdown assistance, and technical advice on a commercial basis.

Reconstructed Model 1 Linotype

We have held in stock for a number of years a Model 1 serial No TXAI that we have now decided to rebuild and sell to an individual or company who would like to add this extremely rare item to their collection. Our intention is to have the machine in fully operational condition. It has an electric metal pot, glass covered assembler front plate, and original magazine.We will fully dismantle the machine to all it's individual castings, repaint, and as appropriate to the rebuild re-engineer any worn or damaged parts.

Information on these machines is very hard to find so should you have any documentation relating to this version of Linotype we would be very pleased to hear from you.
