- Well, maybe I meant boxwood.
I'm collecting wood type ;-)
Just got a couple drawers from a Ukrainian printshop in Michigan, with hand cut Cyrillic glyphs.

Well, yeah, sort of. Acts like a third hand when you really need one.
Keeps the tympan secure to the cylinder when making adjustments or
replacing. Helps keep the tympan/bottom sheet packet from getting
disturbed, easier to manage, etc. Also, quite important, prevents the
tympan from drooping down and snapping off the friction fingers.
Don't leave home without one.
