Dave Seat rescues an Intertype

Dave and Beth Seat spent several weeks earlier this summer restoring to working order an Intertype in Sterling, Colorado that went through a flood last year. The following article about it demonstrates the general lack of comprehension about these machines and doesn’t mention all the work the Seats put into this Intertype, but it is still Hot Metal Services to the rescue. Shortly after this, Dave and Beth were in Silverton for a visit for a short vacation and Dave put the finishing touches on a Star quadder he put on my model 31 Linotype. I’m not sure what the fellow in the video is setting, but it shows the machine working quite well:

On second viewing, I see the plunger is disconnected and the spectators are spell bound watching the cams turn but no type is being produced. Oh well.
