Frank, re the excellent re-posted literature, from John & Liz S. the One liner stating, the *Only spray providing complete control of quantity* etc, holds good because with a full compliment of *Needles* the amount was/is regulated precisely, = Business card,s on a small platen, up to an 8 page in full colour, on a big Cylinder.!

Thankyou Liz and John for the pictures. I have just got my spray unit running and have a compliment of 5 needles but it is nearly 50 years since I last used a unit on a press. By strange coincidence it was on a meihle Vertical then and is the same now. However it would be nice to see the instructions again.

Mick, thanks for the coments.


If you put in google search for aerostyle ltd on page 4 look for and look at the pdf 1957 you will see detailed drawings by Mr. Webb an American of spray units including the one you are after, I think?

or just click the link I just tried it and it will take you there


Thanks for the link.
