Hand-setting type

Some photos of all the type I've been hand-setting lately. I am getting close to where I want to be (in proficiency) in letterpress. 
Weird thing is that for the past few weeks (after hand-setting type at the letterpress shop) I'd have nightmares of me hand-setting type. These nightmares are always of the measuring/ composing stick turning into wiggly rubber or breaking; making all the individual letters I've been setting to fall all over the place! Good thing those nightmares never turned into reality!
