Has anyone found out if it is possible to put a 90 channel full magazine into a G4 Intertype or will I have to run only Half Magazines.
When I got the machine just before xmas it was setup  72/90/72/90 I want to run it as a 72/90/90/90 which according to Intertype it can be done. As I won't be using this machine as a mixer and the last owner never used the 72 channel at all so I have to clean out nearly 30 years of dirt out of the wide channel entrances.

We used to run a G4 At Wellington Typesetters in Wellington, New Zealand.

We only ran a split magazine on the top position so I am sure it is possible - give it a go.
