In the 1860’s Charles Walker’s book “Electrotype Manipulation” ran into thirty editions. In 1868 Alexander Watt reported that;
‘Everyone has his set of electrotyping apparatus and his bath of copper sulphate. Even among the fair sex will be found many skilful manipulators and in such hands, how could the art fail to give beautiful results.’
Some earlier posts describe the processes of electro forming and electrotyping and the differences between them.
