Vintage 1960's Jet Line-Up Light Table, RR31 NuArc Co., Gear Racks



This 1960's light table was used in the commercial printing field to line up print elements to create a clean finished product. The Jet Line table, model RR31, was manufactured in the late 1960's by NuArc Company Inc.

Details: This table utilizes 3 F25T12 lamps to project light through the 24" x 31" opaque glass workspace. 2 straight-edges positioned perpendicular to one another ride on heavy duty gears connected to gear racks. A crank on the base of the table allows the angle of the top to be raised or lowered when used. Situated beside the crank is a single locking drawer containing original pamphlets (catalogs & "How-To's") dated 1969, a key is included.

Condition: This table is in good condition cosmetically. It is not currently operational, as the power cord has been cut. The glass work surface has a few pieces of tape stuck to the surface; likely for protection during storage.

History: This light table was salvaged from the former location of Roanoke Printing Company in downtown Roanoke, Virginia, as the circa 1929 building was prepared to be converted to lofts.
