Did you have one of those roller things to spread the ink evenly on the surface?

No, I had the printing press, but the roller was needed to transfer ink to the platen. Adana sold mounted lino at "type" height. But you still had to emery down the stippled surface, I did that on a flat bed. For using in a printing press it needed all that attention. The wood carving tools were essential, they look like doll's tools. And I had a whetstone to sharpen them. The fine cuts and flat lino could print in a press because the pressure was more finely tuned.
