Intrepid letterpress fans who rescue old metal type from barns, basements, and decades-long neglected shops know the frustration of dust, chipmunk nests, and mouse turds that can inhabit as much space as the type in an old case. The age-old dilemma of how to clean these out has been the bane of letterpress printers for ages. We found one solution that we absolutely love. This vacuum nozzle attachment allows light materials to be sucked up while leaving the type in place. Larger materials stay stuck to the nozzle while running and can be lifted away…again leaving the type in place.
• Cleans small debris while leaving type in place
• Made of plastic
• One-size fits most vacuums
We have sourced a more economical version of the vacuum attachment tool with the same effectiveness of the original. This one has a blue accent color...it just costs less!
