Re: [PPLetterpress] Adhesive repair of cuts
- It would be useful to have and use a micrometer if you can get one Julie.
Type high is .918 of an inch. Make the shortfall out of card/paper/cooking
foil, and cut it fractionally under the area if the wooden mount so it will
not cause lock-up problems. I use a stick glue to fix the additional piece
to the bottom of the original mount. Works a treat.
