Re: Wood word & Letterspacing
- Hi John
Well, I have 1/2-pt coppers and 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, 6-pt "interlines" in
brass, which I use to adjust magnetic bases into position. And I know
that brass was run up to at least 24-pt (as "interlines" and rule).
Bit hard to find, but, situation being, NOT lead. Though I agree, this
thing about printers "lead" is quite off track. As are many popular
but il-considered politically-correct issues.
