|+||====== Well ======|
|+||On the bottom side of the two [[c:cross|cross]] bearers in the middle of a [[f:frame|frame]], on which the inner ends of the [[l:lower-case|lower cases]] rest, there is frequently a bottom nailed of thin deal; this, when the ends of the cases are close together, forms a receptacle in which the compositor puts copy and other articles, and it is named a Well. To obtain access to it he slides one of the cases a little away from the other. |
