13722RE: [PPLetterpress] polymer versus lead type
- Feb 2, 2014As I understand it, then, the issue is that in stripping the old covering and prepping for the new, some metal is removed from the core each time. One would hope that a person recovering a roller would notice that the core is already roughened and not do it again, but then if the old covering is well adhered to the metal, cleaning it all off without removing metal could be a problem.

Sorry if the terminology is confusing. Be re-coring here I meant altering the surface of the core itself (with a rough cut in a lathe) in the process of rewinding (prior to).
