I was able to pick up most of my new equipment late last week and had some time to work with it over the weekend. It's quite .different than anything I have ever worked with, and the touch on the new composer for straight matter is going to take a lot of getting used to! I am hoping that it will get a lot better as I get more practice on it. We have made some minor changes in the shop, but still have a long way ,to go. We won't be able to get things anywhere near what We want until we are able to get rid of our big newspaper press, and I dont plan on having that taken out until I have proven to. myself that the change to offset is going to work. With only one more issue to get out by the old process, I am really getting jumpy about the change, and now that I have a chance to work with the new equipment and find, out how different it is, I become more apprehensive about the change.
