How to Make A Pad of Paper:
Jog your stack of paper so that the edges are squared. If using a large stack, we recommend using a Paper Jogger to jog the sheets quickly and easily. If you are using Chipboard for a back cover, place this on the bottom of the stack.
With the backing to your Padding Machine in place, set your stack of paper tightly against it with the clamp board on top. Clamp the paper and board together.
Remove the backing to your Padding Machine and apply the appropriate kind of glue to the edges using your padding brush. You will want to saturate the edges, but do not apply so much that the glue drips.
Wait for the padding glue to dry. Depending on the padding glue you are using, this can take anywhere from 10-30 minutes. If using red padding compound the color will change from a pinkish tint to a red tint once it is dry. Apply a second coat, if necessary. While the padding compound is drying, wash your padding brush.
Once your padding glue is dry, loosen the clamps and remove your pad of paper. If you choose, use the optional padding knife to cut and separate your large pad into smaller pads.
