One letterprress tool that always seems to be hard to find...is a quoin key. Vintage quoins are readily available on the secondary market, but not so much with the keys. We set about to make a key—that is really 3 keys! The Dry Lock was created by and manufactured for Dry Inc. in a limited run. They are made with chrome plated steel covered with a bright red plastic handle casing (for ease of finding in a crowded printshop).
Accommodates the three most popular styles of quoins:
• Challenge/Hempel Wedge Quoins
• Challenge Hi-Speed Quoins
• Wickersham Quoins
