      Sometimes 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.
