Speaking of teflon pads...I'm considering a used HT-600. the platen is discolorated and the pad has to be replaced. Would this cause me problems even if I used a teflon sheet as well? srry to steal the threadTwinge said:Teflon sheets will last for a long time. They take quite a while to wear down much at all. You might also want a teflon pad for the bottom of the press if it doesn't come with one.
