 +— The false bottom of a large galley, made to slide out, for the purpose of keeping a [[q:​quarto|quarto]] or a [[f:​folio|folio]] page upon it, without disturbing it, as being safer than transferring it to a [[p:​page-paper|page paper]]. //See// [[g:​galley|Galley]]. ​
 +Slice is also the name of an iron implement used in the [[i:​ink-block|ink block]] to transfer the [[i:​ink|ink]] from the tub or other receptacle, and to scrape it together in a mass, clear of the [[b:​balls|balls]] when ink is taken with them; it has an iron pin through it near the bottom of the handle, so that if it falls flat on the ink block, it will rest on this pin, which prevents the handle from being smeared with ink.
