This makes a HUGE difference in how the stripper works. And this isn't out of my head, it says so in the instructions.

Another thing is you run some very coarse paper like 36 or 40 over it well to scratch the surface so the stripper can jump right in and do it's job.

Very good point to bring up there Dave!

Brian, there is a very good explanation of how the stripper works and some tips on using it in this link
