Re: [BKARTS] pressing tins



I always wrap my pressing tins in waxed paper.  I had an incident a while
back where I left a book in my standing press overnight with pressing tins
in it, and I guess a combination of sharp edges, too much glue, too much
pressure, and too much time, made the pressing tins a permanent part of the
book.

I use metal flashing from Home Depot for my smaller pressing tins, and buy
from www.OnlineMetals.com when I need larger sizes.  They will custom cut
metal sheets into specified measurements.
