    For Bob Carnie

    Bob;

    Here are photos of several coating blades.

    From left to right, 16", 12", 11" and 8". This is the width of usable coated area. The length is based on how well you can pull the blade at a constant rate. My max is about 22 - 24" for the 16" blade.

    I've appended a photo of an 8" coating in progress showing the draw. This is a frame that I clipped from the DVD, so you will see raster lines. Sorry. The point of this photo is to show the draw and show the waste at the top. There is also selvege along both sides due to surface tension, and there is a defect at the end when you reach the limit of the coating plate.

    You would need one 12.25 - 12.5" long for 12" wide film. Surface tension causes a bead at each edge that must be removed, so you need overwidth. You would have to coat a length of at least 22" - 24". However, I only have paper blades at this time. Film blades are a different design.

    The cost would run in the range of $1300. These are 308 or 316 stainless, and are highly polished and built to 0.001" tolerance. It takes months to get one from the machine shop. Perhaps someone in the Steel City can do it for you!
