This style of marking tool is an industry standard mass produced insert and therefore economically priced. Standard styles of inserts are; Magsitype, Typortype and Eurotype. All these styles can be supplied as boxed sets, A-Z, 0-9, ampersands etc or as individual items. The practicality of the steel type marking system comes from the ability to rapidly compose interchangeable strings of characters.
Frederick Follows also supply hand holders, press holders and roll-marking holders for all our styles of interchangeable steel type.
