Sign Press Show Card and Poster Machine

I have a friend who was given this show card and poster machine.(Sign Press by Display and Equipment Co. Michigan) It came with rubber looking type. A label says to wash the type with water. The roller is metal. What kind of ink could be used with this machine? Thank you.

I would think you could use letterpress ink or use a softer ink (less tacky) such as Caligo SafeWash

Perhaps a water based flexo ink could be used. Maybe the roller lost its coating of rubber or leather.

Water based ink and such nonsense doesn’t work here, the roller is a Impression roller, not an Form roller, the Form was hand inked
