Looking for old school Ultra Heavy Grotesques

    I was looking for something along the lines of the main typefaces you see in the attached picture of a Hatch Show Print letterpress poster that hangs in my study & i was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction?

    There's a few ready-distressed typefaces around like Shelton, or Goshen, but I've not been able to find anything with those big chunky sans letters about that would work in a neater setting. My bank balance would be happier if they were bundled with Windows, available on the Typekit Free Plan, or available as free or inexpensive downloads, but mostly I just want to know what would work!

    Eveleth, Melma Cracked, Nexa Rust, Phosphate, Poplar Std Black.

    I think all are free.
    Some are distressed.
    All are bold.

    A belated than you for your help @scotty. Although I ended up moving away from the woodtype idea a little, I did use the slab version of Nexa Rust in the final design, which was for a t-shirt for my merch stand :)

    You're welcome Pete.

    I've used Nexa Rust quite a few times myself.
    Looking good! :D
