Print Dryer I think?

Hi guys,

I bought what I initially thought was a print dryer off Ebay. But I'm beginning to think its not.

Theirs not brand name or model on it. Ther unit consists of a concave surface both back and front that gets hot, then canves covers can be laid across with steel plates.

Am I right in thinking this is not a dryer but a glasser for fibre based papers?

Many Thanks
Stuart
Apologise for the spelling.

I'm no expert but had one years ago. Not having seen it I suspect that it is a dryer and glazing plate for fibre papers.

You lay the print on top of the curved surface you then hold flat and taut by tensioning the "muslin-type" cloth.

An optional glazing plate restores the gloss finish to glossy papers that otherwise dry to a lustre finish with the dryer.

It will probably melt RC papers!

John's right - it's for fibre based papers.
