Slipsheeting
from Fancyclopedia 2 Supplement ca. 1960
Interleaving freshly-run mimeographed pages with absorbent sheets to prevent offset is one of the more uninspiring jobs of publication. Some machines like the AB Dick electrics have automatic slipsheeters, and various fans have tried to devise elementary devices to let them handle mimeography single-handed. In Hyphen, James White described Walt Willis' experiements with a shaker which distributed rice grains over the page as it hit the tray. WAW added that rice was too light to shake out properly and he was experimenting with airgun shot — BBs to us Yanks.
