- Nov 26, 2009I've actually found "warm red" is the most difficult color that I use
semi-regularly to clean off our Miehle V-50's.... Even with 2 or 3 washes,

what you find on the average C&P. And thanks to color matching software,
designers have come to expect absolute perfection, not the variations that
were once considered completely normal.

Heidleberg cylinder, but no washup blade--and you will notice the
