My Adana 5x8 press arrived on Friday and after unpacking it and checking out all the bits, I've downloaded the instruction manual from and hopefully later on today I'm going to start printing.

So I thought to refresh my type setting skills that I'd Youtube any type of videos that explain daft mistakes not to make. (Though maybe mistakes are a good thing?) So in all it's 10 minutes of excruciating boredom (serious editing required!) this little video is quite thorough and explains the whole process of setting metal type.
