On a sheet-fed letterpress printing machine, a frisket was a sheet of oiled paper which covered the space between the type column or heading (about 1 inch or 2.5 cm in height) and the edge of the paper that was being printed. A guide was a springy metal finger that momentarily pressed on the edge of the sheet of paper to hold it in place for the brief instant while the impression was made. When the press operator took a brayer (an ink roller) to roll over the surface of the type to coat the surface with ink which pressed onto the paper to make an impression, the ink brayer would often coat the "furniture" (wood spacing blocks) or the metal spacers that were between the columns and around the type.
A frisket in is a plastic sheet with an adhesive backing used in airbrushing to mask off specific areas of an image so that only the exposed area is covered with paint.
