 +====== Tympan Cloth ======
 +
 +A fine and even linen cloth, about an inch or two larger on every side than the paper worked on: this cloth is wetted, and the water wrung out again, so that it remains only moist: it is laid on the [[t:​tympan|tympan]] instead of a tympan sheet, the under sides of the corners pasted to the tympan, and worked upon as a tympan sheet for the [[r:​reiteration|reiteration]]. It is used to save paper, and it is repeatedly washed to clear it of the [[i:​ink|ink]] that sets off on it. — //M//. It is not used now, but set-off sheets are substituted for it.
