    I will lay money that it was more that it pissed off her co-workers. I always tried to avoid using it where there was poor ventilation. I had to clean transport rollers on an Apeco Super Deuce once that at the back of a 5X8 former closet with file cabinets down on side and no ventilation. I had a head ache for a week afterwards.

    I still use good old WD-40 others disagree but it does a good job at rejuvenating feed rollers.

    Rubber is a petroleum based product that dries out over time. So it makes sense.

    Thumbs up Re: Strechy feed tires

    Used to get these at Precision Roller. Then I began using "Stix All" in the tube. Just carefully laid it on and gave it 24 hours cure... Worx great if you can still find it. Made by Elmer's.

    I had a lady ask once if I could put some alcohol on a rag and leave it in her trash can on my way out the door...I had no plans on getting to know her better so I gave my alcohol bottle a good squeeze into a rag and promptly thru it away on my way out the door...

    I used to use that stuff too, but been using this for several years now. I think it's basically the same (sure smells like it anyway )
