I was just a kid when I went with my dad to move one of these, so I don't remember much. But when I was watching the Linotype film with my dad, he went on to give me all kinds of details regarding tricks and pitfalls during re-assembly of these machines.
Two hours to reassemble? That's not long at all! I guess it depends on how much was disassembled?
Good to see guys here with ink and metal in their blood!
