I bought a SP15 a couple of years ago. The rollers were/are clean and seem to work fine, but they are shiny and quite hard. However, after reading a recent post on Briarpress about cleaning rollers I wonder if mine are glazed and need to be deglazed (or possibly recovered). Certainly, the rollers are not dull with a mat finish as are the rollers for a Kelsey 5×8 that were recovered recently for me by Advanced Rollers in CA. These rollers are not shiny but are dull and are good bit softer.

  1. I found Putz Pomade at NAGraph.com. I should have thought of Fritz first.
    I will see if it takes care of my issue.

  2. Paul, thanks for the info. I found Putz Pomade on Amazon for less that $20. But, I still
    wonder if print quality would be better if the rollers were more pliable, which means having
    them recast. Not opposed to recasting the rollers if it will help. You might explain pliability in context of rollers. The press was exceptionally clean when i bought it and appeared well maintained, but the rollers are probably quite old.

    I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
