- Multilith duplicator model 750, with handbook.
Miultilith is a printing process that requires either chemically fixing copy on a metal sheet or preparing a paperlike master copy by typing, printing, or drawing
The machine is used primarily by small businesses. The Multilith operates on the same principle as lithography, but through the use of paper placed on a cylinder and run off.
Lithography is a printing process in which the image to be printed is rendered on a flat surface, as on sheet zinc or aluminum, and treated to retain ink while the nonimage areas are treated to repel ink.
The following accessories accompany the machine:
Plastic bag of covers for rollers, containing a roll of fabric material with adhesive backing
Cardborad box containing spare blanket, instructions for care of blanket and a cylinder (wood core surrounded by felt and paper) with an unidentified use
Plunger can for cleaning blanket (a cylindrical pumping device)
Bottle with pipe attachment
