Instructions on how to use the Bantam Duplicator Machine

In brief, to make a handwritten stencil and copies, you would use the steel stylus point to write onto a sheet of stencil paper, perforating it with minute holes.

The completed stencil would then be placed and held in the printing frame.

Ink would be applied to the roller using the inking slate and passed over the stencil sheet and this would reproduce the content of the stencil onto the paper placed underneath.
