Self-inker for Line-O-Scribe anyone

I recently bought and rebuilt a Morgan 1422 Line-O-Scribe. I love it! But I’m not happy with having to hand ink it! Does anyone have a unit with a self-inker that would be willing to photograph from all angles and perhaps do a bit of measuring? I’m considering replicating one. For those who’d also like one, please encourage someone who does have one to participate. Perhaps I could manufacture a few for those who want one

A number of years ago I spent quite a bit of time building a somewhat similar device for an old Vandercook. The picture you posted showing the device has some similar features. I know I have this documented with pictures. If you are interested send me your email address and I will send you a copy.

Next time I’m in my shop I’ll take some measurements and photos.

Hi - any luck on a self-inker? Thinking of building one for my non-self-inking 1422. Thanks!
