Daniel Schneider, Graduate Student of Industrial Archaeology, Michigan Technological University, will be discussing the industrial archaeology of the die-stamp machine currently on display at the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum. The die-stamp machine was used to create wood decorative borders for printing.
