Kilograms of type.

Last year I bid on a lovely wooden type cabinet that was located in the north of Tasmania. Unfortunately I didn't win the auction, but did have a chat with the vendor: a lovely gentleman called John who used to work with the Examiner newspaper. He kindly donated to me a collection of his old type. Unfortunately he was about to send it off for scrap so it's about 120 kilograms of mixed type at the moment. Luckily I have a couple of alphabet savvy children!
