I’m curious as to the diameter of the tearing wires as compared to the gsm or paper basis weight produced on this mould which I assume you can only guess.

Brian - I agree the wires do seem unnecessarily heavy even though the thickness of the deckle does not suggest a very thick paper. The same would apply to the similar diamond laid moulds M250 (not a featured mould but it is the most recently added photo album). The only idea I had was that even if the paper was the normal notepaper/envelope weight, the slips could be fiddly to tear, especially the narrow tapering waste triangles so having a heavy tearing lining would help and would have no disadvantage. Other suggestions would be welcome. Simon
