Re: [PPLetterpress] Scoring on a Heidleberg Platen
- Thanks Allen, worked excellent. Brilliant Idea, I'm leaving that rule locked up for future use.
All the best

A work around to score the full width of a card, past the brass guide
Take rollers off.
Cut a piece of 2 pt scoring rule to the total
width of card, Grind out a notch just enough to
clear the bottom of the chase so that it hangs
over to the scribed line on the chase for brass
Lock up. Get position, normal packing plus tympan
(for .918 rule). Be sure score is between brass
Ink rule with thumb/or - print on tympan.
Affix a piece of 2 pt scoring rule (flat ways)
about 18 pts - (not enough to hit guide bar) past
the bottom edge of platen centered on the mark,
remove packing - leaving just the tympan + rule
Cut channel scoring matrix to suit, attach to
flat rule, peel off channel leaving the matrix to
the very bottom of flat rule. Keeping in mind, of
course, to just roll over once to attach, the
grippers will wipe off the channel other wise
The score may be a bit weaker on the 14 pts that
the brass guides need, but it works in a pinch.
Any ?'s - give me a shout.
P. S. I'll be signing off the list come Monday -
going out of the country for a month. I'll be
back the first week of December
