Re: mimeograph machine

Memeographs and Ditto machines are quite different from one another.  A
memeograph uses a wax stencil that is "cut" by typeing or drawing upon it,
it is placed on a drum in which there is ink which extrudes through the
stencil to make the image.  A Ditto machine, uses a slick paper and heavy
ink carbon paper.  You type on the front, the image, in reverse, is
impressed from the carbon onto the back of the sheet.  A solvent, usually
"spirit ether" is then wiped over the image which prints a blue copy until
the ink layer is exhausted.  Many fewer copies with a ditto "master" than
with a memeograph stencil.
