    I found the best way to start the laminate is to stick a flat, thin substrate (such as aluminum or 1mm Sintra) across the width of the laminate, loosen the tension on the roller, pull the laminate through the rollers (making sure that the laminate is straight and has even tension). Now tighten the rollers to the proper tension. It should work fine. The daige 3 takes some getting used to.
    Have you upgraded to the new belt system for the 3? This won't affect the loading but it will make for a smoother running machine.

    Are the belt system upgrades still available? I was told by dealer that they can no longer be gotten.

    I purchased my upgrade about 8 months ago directly through Daige (1-800-645-3323). Cost was less than $100 and well worth it. I actually like my Daige laminator now. I think it is a good value for a smaller sign shop that is not going to be laminating for several hours every day. I am considering adding the Daige 4 as a second unit so I can have one for cast laminates and one for calandered.
