The result of this procedure is that the spacing

work up above the surface of the type face and
thus imprint a smudge upon the sheet being
printed. This not only spoils every sheet that is

be resorted to without departing from the spirit
in connection with the wood furniture placed
of the invention or the scope of the subjoined
around the form.
In using the ?anged strip,
the sharp edges of the bulges at the bottom
of the strip prevent it from working-up on that
side, and the ?ange at the top of the strip pre
vents the wood furniture from working-up on
that side.
Instead of the bulges and grooves, the face
10 of the metal strips may be prepared in any other
form, or suitable manner, to present a slightly
greater width at the bottom in order to counter
act the tendency of the form to arch, or buckle. ,
The invention may be applied in pages of type,
15 “monotype”, or “linotype” slugs, where spring
ing or arching is in evidence, or in smaller in
side units where a similar condition prevails; also
between sections in forms in order to keep the
furniture against the bed of the press.
