Re: [PPLetterpress] Re: Rollers...?
There is a keyway on the double saddle, but not on the single. If the double
saddle were to get twisted (if there was not a keyway) when running the
press with no rollers, doing diecutting for example, it could become severely
damaged by hitting roller ways, or other nearby parts of the press.

I've posted a photo of my "pyramid" roller, which is not quite an
oscillator but really helps the inking on my 8 x 12.
You can see it at:
Click on the link for "pyramid or rider roller"
You can easily make a rider from any suitable excess roller this way.
- You are exactly right, Speed. Don't ask me how I know this!
