    Do I really need this roll?
    What is this roll for?
    It is part # 5401.
    It is a weekend so I can't ask Seal.
    Considering to buy this laminator. I'm using Daige for years....It will be my mounting machine now. Time to upgrade.
    Do you think is a right choice? I have 2 Versacamm 540V.
    Thank you for any input.

    This is the problem. I don't know what is this. Seal has it on the web listed as optional and it is on the quote what I have. I have the name and part number and can't find any information about it.
    How do you like your laminator?
    Thank you

    Seal just added this for the 54 EL. It is a retrofit that holds a roll of vinyl in a "scoop" or trough at the front of the feed table. Its a worthwhile addition if you have larger roll of material that you want to laminate off of a roll. if you do smaller stuff or sheeted stuff, its not that critical.

    Yes . I did. It is only few. I will be happy to hear more from people who use it for few months....not from dealers...what they like and what they don't.
    This model is not long on the market.

    Matt. Thank you for your offer. I'm very loyal and I'm with one of my best supplier.
    They everyday support don't allow me to think about someone else. I got very good price by the way.

    My old Daige....I don't remember number was good. I sold it with my business. Moved to another state and got another one (Quickmount 4). Not to many problems but much worse than old one. It is very good mounting machine. At list I don't have to be carefull to pull big pices....it is cheap.
