[BKARTS] Plough Problems



Hi All.
I'm wondering how you frequent ploughers handle a perennial ploughing problem. 
1) Do you usually plough before, after or between rounding and backing?
2) The last ploughed side at spine edge is sometimes rough, where the last section sometimes tears away rather than being neatly cut. Is this just a function of having the right amount of wastepaper between textblock swell and trimming board?
Ploughed under (but not hammered)

The Bibliotheque Nationale (Tolbiac) usually has exhibitions from their 
own collections. When I was there last (in November) they had on 
display, among other items, the Notebook of Villard de Honnecourt. In 
the Marais the Bibliotheque Historique de la Ville de Paris often has 
interesting book-related shows in the basement. Then of course there's 
the Musee de Cluny, etc. etc.
