Subject: Low-pressure book wedge

Low-pressure book wedge

As a post-graduate student book conservation at the University of
Amsterdam I am currently working on my thesis regarding the
treatment of iron-gall ink damage in bound manuscripts.  In light of
this research I would like to pose the following questions to Cons
DistList readers involved in book and paper conservation (and
related subjects) who have experience with the use of low-pressure
book wedges:

    Do you own, or does the institution you work for own a
    low-pressure book wedge?

    For what purpose was it bought?

    Is it in use now, and what is it/has it been used for?

    How often would you say you use it?

    What is your experience with this device, is it practical, does
    it meet expectations?

    What type do you use?
