Bwahahaha! I didn't know there were any of us left. My first job was as a typesetter. I believe I may be among the last generation to have set hot type. The high tech typesetting that came next was phototype on big reels attached to mainframe computers. One reel per font. The keyboard looked like something from the deck of the original Enterprise. The reels would rock back and forth as you typed, rotating to the letter that you had punched in, exposing the negative image from the reel onto photosensitive paper, which you then had to unload and feed into the processor in pitch blackness. The woman I worked with had been a typesetter for 30 years. She could set type at 108 words per minute and have no idea what she had just punched in. It was amazing.

Yeah, I am not quite of the generation when it was still going on but I love it when I have the chance. Did you run a linotype or other typecaster, or did you use handset type?

My living room is full of type cabinets, a composing stone, reglet, rule, galley trays, and the like, and various small cast iron presses. I have an old Washington handpress in pieces that I am restoring in the garage too. Lots of lead. Lots of joist supports in the basement!
