SECTION I - CLASS DEFINITION

Means for forming from material while in a fluid state the elements, either separately or in the form of a bar or line, that are adapted to be set up to constitute a printing-form.

Note. Does not include the casting of stereotype-plates nor forging or molding type from plastic material by pressure. By "fluid" is meant a condition wherein the cohering particles of the mass seek a level under gravity, implying adaptability to be poured.
