I was contacted by a person from Portugal regarding an English Caster he wants to purchase.
We need to talk about this.I see it came from Woodside Press. I vaguely remember you. The caster was loaded into a box van. Is that correct? A phone # would help.

I just found this site.
Are the empty matrix cases still available?
Are there justifying scales?
Are the sorts mats and wedges still for sale?
Would you send them to The Netherlands?
Do you have any monotype stuff for sale left?
I asked before, but got no respond.
Interested in a monotype typecaster and accessories thereon. hope it still works(?) I see that the keyboard is gone and thats a shame. Was looking for the whole set. Guess I came in too late. I hope you have some types too. That would be great.
