For Type Casting Machines

image link-topic-sf0.jpg

This set of Notebooks covers a range of preliminary topics necessary for the full understanding of type casting machinery.

First, there are certain technical elements which are not themselves typecasting machines but are nonetheless necessary for (or influential upon) the development of typecasting machines:

Then there are other components which, while not strictly necessary, are present on many typecasting machines:

There are also certain basic design decisions which must be made:

Finally, there are certain often overlooked things which are useful to understand:
