Re: out of paper!

New job in a slaughterhouse, one printer constantly jamming in one area, ham-fisted users constantly ripping the paper trying to extract from the fuser, resulting in numerous service calls.

Cause of the jams - Damp paper.

Why was the paper damp - Old wooden table removed (before I started) & that used to soak up all the moisture in the air.

Solution - Department collected a fresh ream of paper at the start of every shift.
