Subject: [Leica] Auto sheet feeder with the Epson 3800

Mark, I fed about 30 sheets (A4 & A3+) of Crane Museo Silver Rag (300gsm) 
through the regular sheet feeder without problems, before
I found out that it is not supposed to work. However, it was all one sheet 
at a time, so no advantage in doing it that way. The
paper path for the rear sheet feeder is straighter and the paper seems to be 
located more precisely, that is should feed exactly
straight. I encountered print head strikes  on 12x18 prints on 13x19 paper 
(through the rear feeder). It is vital to curl back the
corners and edges well before insertion. Also you need a wider than normal 
platen gap.
190gsm is thin paper compared to most of the premium types. Only one variant 
of the "William Turner" is 190gsm, most of the
Hahnemuhle range is thicker. My every day standard Fuji Premium glossy is 
235gsm. It feeds fine from a stack in the regular feeder.

It would seem to me that you  could stack the Hahnem?hle or other companies 
190gsm or other thinner rag papers in the regular sheet
feeder as its the same or close thickness  as other papers its got going in 
there in stacks.
The one sheet at a time thing is not working out for me.

Inquiring inkjetters want to know.

I see GSM means
grams per square meter

which would indicate bigger paper could be thinner and be the same gsm.

Also means
Global Shared Memory

General Support Maintenance  (that's me!)

Gay Skinhead Movement
Gimme Some Money (Spinal Tap song)
Great Scots Magazine (bi-monthly magazine for Scottish terrier lovers0

German Seamen?s Mission

Ground Support Module  (from the moon launch? Tom Hanks?)

Generic Services Model (ANSI)

(I rely heavily on Generic Services. As it would seem to cover just about 
everything involving non capital letters.)
