This patent model demonstrates an invention for a typesetting machine which was granted patent number 174916. The type was stored vertically in channels, and was dropped piece by piece down converging tracks behind a glass panel, and assembled in a long line in a raceway at the bottom. The line was divided and space-fitted by a second operator. As with Lorenz's first patent, the rights were assigned indirectly to Henry Burr.
