This mid-century1960'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. The 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. Item worked prior to salvaging but has not been tested. 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.
