A recent read through the Atlas Pressman Manual revealed an interesting phenomenon.  Did you know that BODY PARTS are hidden throughout the book?  We found more than 15 of them!

All of the listed "body part" homonyms are found in the Atlas Pressman's Manual.  Some are obvious as to their meaning... others not so much! And although many of them can be found in the SAFETY section using their "human" definition, every one of these has a NON-BODY meaning in the manual as well! 


This word play correlation was discovered recently while reviewing the pressman manuals for typos and clarity.  The newest versions are stored in the User Group, where you can download if needed, or just take a peek to see if you're a press vocabulary whiz!



See if you can define these BEFORE you look them up.


(  ) Rounded parentheses refer to the number found at the bottom of each printed page.

This term is found on page 63 of the Atlas User Manual.  It refers to the process of using a piece of material to test the settings between rollers and oscillators.  Basically, it's asking you to pull the material straight out from between the rollers, rather than letting it curve around either one of them.  In the purest sense of the base word (tangent), the material would be touching the curve at only ONE point.

NPES  - and over 600 companies it represents - are urging swift enactment of H.R. 636, the America's Small Business Tax Relief Act of 2015.


This vital legislation would permanently restore IRC Section 179 ("Small Business" non-depreciating expensing) to $500,000 and index it to inflation, thereby spurring much needed capital investment, economic growth and jobs.
