8478Re: buying old type
- Oct 3, 2007Sometimes one encounters a font of rare or historical type which one desires
despite the oxidation.
The oxide can be removed by soaking the type overnight in a bath of vinegar
and water. The type should then be given a protective coating of oil, to be
wiped off when it is used. Of course it will never print like new type.
