Care and maintenance of perforator

I recently purchased a Rosback perforator. It does a great job. All pins are in place and perforating.Anyone have any advice or info source for this type of machine?I've looked around the internet for any kind of advice on care, maintenance and use of this machine or one like it and so far no luck.The pins look like they have a little bit of dark build up - like the kind you might get from gum or glue over time.It was filthy - it was in a print shop that had opened in 1917, according to the…See More

"Actually, the gum on label paper is quite powerful.  I find that barely moistening it is all you need or let it dry a bit before applying otherwise, it can easily warp the paper support.  After all, the adhesive is meant to stick to…"

"Thanks for the leads.  I have some paper used to make labels for wine and beer bottles.  It is gummed but much less than normal gummed paper for stamps would be.  Its major advantage is that it is much cheaper.  "

Where to get sheets of dry gum paper

Does anyone know a source for dry gummed sheets of paper?  Looking for 8x11 in a ream if possible.  So far, all sources have turned up dry with one expensive exception.  Have looked at wine/beer bottle labels but they come on small packs of 5 or 10.   ThanksSee More

Sorry Badger, your Mail Art arrived just before we left for our thanksgiving holiday and when I got back I was so crazy busy, that it has remained in a stack of - to be answered by return Mail Art - which I haven't gotten to yet. Sorry I didn't let you know sooner. I can see you put a lot of work into cutting out those figures!

Got 'em! The flowery envelope with all the ants (?) and the feathered card. Many thanks -- they are both very nice. Do you know what sort of bird kindly agreed to denote some of it's beautifuk feathers to your Mail Art? Thanks A Birdy & thanks A Badger, too.

Dear "A", this is the last but certainly not the least welcome message to IUOMA you receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly corner of the faraway universe called Republik van Patland. When you joined IUOMA on June 12 I was unable to welcome you on board.  At the time I was in a celestial journey far beyond the Milky Way. Now, back to planet Earth, I´d love to be the other end when you decide it’s the right time to start trading snail mail art. If this is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:

The Celestial Scribe

Terrene Embassy

The Celestial Republik van Patland

Caixa Postal 24827

Curitiba-PR

80510-970

Brazil

II look forward to see a piece of yours in my terrene mailbox. I will do my homework after receiving yours. This is a celestial promise. I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland official envelope provider.

Welcome! My postal address is on my IUOMA page. If you send me Mail Art, and include your postal address, I'll send you Mail Art in return.
