        Hi Matthew

        What we need is for these "shameless plugs" to be put in the Links or
        Files or Database sections here, so folks can contact you on a
        relatively permanent basis (as long as PPL is around!!!), rather than
        based on a post that will disappear tomorrow and is only accessible
        through the Message Archives. The moderators will no longer do this

            The website is almost unfathomable and I certainly wouldn't order
            this device/system....based on their internal claims.

              to allow me to take off a few thousanths on a lathe? It is quite pitted

                  Hi Scott-

                  the surfaces of inking cylinders of presses
                  are typically finished on a cylindrical grinder.
                  This allows for a very smooth surface, no taper,
                  and accurate dimensional control.

                  I would hesitate to refinish an inking cylinder
                  on a lathe. If the cylinder is cast iron, it might
                  go well. If it is constructed of steel pipe welded
                  to a mandrel, it can be difficult to get a good
                  finish with a lathe. If it isn't hurting anything,
                  I'd go with Fritz's suggestion and leave it alone.

                  If it is a problem, check with some grinding shops
                  and see what they charge. A good place to start
                  would be asking whoever sharpens the knife on your
                  paper cutter. They might be a full service plant
                  and do cylindrical and surface grinding, too. If
                  they don't, it's likely they could direct you to
                  someone who does.

                  This is from my perspective as a tool and die
                  maker with many years in the trade.


                  kind regards,

                    would have to do something about it, but possibly some fine sanding
                    will be enough, even if it still looks bad.
