Ludlow Matrix Case Layout?

Hello -

Does anyone have a layout diagram for the Ludlow case? I have looked all over the place, but can’t find one. Thanks!

Here’s one, from David Bolton’s extensive collection:

Randolph Karch gives a very slightly different case lay in his “Operation of the Ludlow Typograph.” This is online at:

Thank you, David! I appreciate it.

Hope you are well.

Hi Guys, David Boltons picture is almost right, except the lay should be l/c to the left and caps to the right, the same as a jobbing case, whether left hand or right hand drawers. This was standard in industry, but if its for your personal use put the mats where you like if only you will use it!
