Steps To Book Restoration New Jersey

By Christopher Allen

At some point, even our favorite books become worn out and torn apart. You do not need to but another as you can solve this problem right at home. You only need to follow a very simple process, and your books will be good as new. The items required are affordable, and some are even in our homes. This is the procedure of book restoration new jersey.

The first step is to take our manuscript and arrange it in the pages it is supposed to appear. Over time, this may become very difficult because it is hard to straighten out an old dog-eared page. It may take a while, but it will all be worth it because you do not need to pay any one for it. You can use a smooth piece of wood to straighten out all of the pages.

After doing this, you will require two wood slats. These are used for aligning the book spine into position. The slats are also a big help during drilling. This because you cannot drill directly on the paper. It may cause a lot of spiraling resulting in overly large holes. The wood slats help in reducing the vibration effects of the drill on the paper.

Clamping facilitates the drilling of the book. This is because it holds the book in position before the holes are drilled into the wood slats and then into the paper. The kind of clamp recommended is small G clamps. This made the movement so much easier. Big clamps may get in the way, and you may not be left with space for drilling.

Drilling is a very dangerous process. If you allow the drill to go through the spine of the book and on to the other slat clamp, you may end up drilling your fingers depending on the speed of the drill. To avoid this, you should not allow the drill to go all the way through the second wood slat. You may always find another method to allow the hole to be complete.

As you drill through the spine, you may use a hand-held motor or a drill press which would work so much better. You cannot always be sure that you may drill straight. So you should drill a hole and leave some space before you drill another. You can drill the spaces left from the other side of the spine. You may have to move the clamp for this but ensure the papers do not move. Otherwise. There will be no alignment.

When you are done the drilling. It is time to sew. You are not going to use the normal thread but the strong kind. Like the one used for shoes. You should do this as you move the manuscript clamp and the boards carefully. You should take your time in moving the boards and the clamp because even the slightest movement of the paper means all your hard work will have gone to waste.

The final part is the cover. The old one is a perfect fit. You only need to use new fabric which is the color and texture of your choosing. For the edges of the pages, you may use the gold spray to give it that new and attractive look.
