The affordable Martin Yale J1811 Padding Press makes it easy to create professional carbonless forms, notepads, business forms, and scratchpads. With a height capacity of 11", the J1811 model is best for smaller padding jobs. This press is contructed of metal for durability and is slightly angled for creating an even and straight edge.
The main function of a padding press is to hold stacks of paper evenly and firmly in place while the operator applies the padding compound (glue) to the exposed edge. The Martin Yale J1811 requires no assembly. Simply remove from the box, slide the back panel in and you are ready to begin. Start by adding your stacks of paper on the table, flush against the back panel. Place the clamp plate on top of the stack, slide down the wing screws and fully tighten them by hand. Remove the back panel exposing the edge to be glued. Apply the appropriate padding compound with a brush and let it dry. Once dry to the touch, you can remove the stack and if needed, use a padding knife to separate individual pads.
When padding carbonless forms (ncr paper), a special padding compound, Fan-A-Part Padding Glue, is used. This glue automatically seals each set of carbonless sheets together, eliminating the need to separate them using a padding knife.
For regular papers, our standard fast dry or extra fast dry padding compounds can be used.
