Another crap day. I'm still coughing and snotting like a good 'un. I clear my nose on classic french style - block one nostril and blow hard. If done correctly the snot splats on the ground. If not it splats on your hand, chin, sleeve, shirt etc.
The press gave endless hassle. She'd run sweet for an hour until the upper mould wore out a bit and then start to stick, and spew offcuts everywhere. Then we'd change the mould and it would run OK for an hour, followed by a hlf hour of hassle before changing the mould again.
A mould should last an hour and a half to 2 hours.
