      Oh yes, some lint. The original post would have indicated more than a
      normal lint problem, at least as I interpreted it.

      Even when cutting the stocks more prone to roughness, it can be
      minimized by the judicial application of parafin to the blade prior
      to each cut. Of course, this would not be practical on a production
      basis, but for most of the listmembers it would not be overly
      burdensome for the quantities involved.

      Plus, methinks that the vendor should make some effort to remove or
      minimize the lint before shipping, but is that just my obsolete
      service oriented philosophy?
