Please note your rotary type in your signature!

Please take a moment to note in your signature what type of rotary or rotaries you use. This will really help people when they go research rotary archive threads. It will also help you get faster and more accurate help with problems if people can see what type of equipment you are using. Most people have either the "chuck" type that has three adjustable metal jaws in a round chuck to grab the base of the item OR the "hot dog" three roller version (like Russ shows for his rotary videos regarding his first blue and white machine). It is called a "hot dog" version because it resembles the food service equipment at your local quickie food mart fuel station where the hot dogs roll for many hours under a heat lamp until some brave and very hungry soul buys it (and quickly regrets it!)

A third type has rollers with an adjustable height adjustment on one end to level (for instance) a bottle with a neck. These are much more versital than the hotdog roller type. Gene

That is often referred to as the "hot dog roller" style. It is a reference to the hot dog warmer system often seen in bodegas and convenience stores where hot dogs are kept rolling under a heat lamp for hours until someone is so hungry their good judgement is overruled by their growling stomach. ;)
