Pin reg

I have been a user of many of the systems mentioned.  Down here, near
the end of the earth almost nothing is transferred via Pin
registration.  In fact in my travels I haven't used one since operating
a machine in the Philippines!

The advantages of the Pin Up were that you didn't have to worry about
recorrecting images when you changed gates as with Steady gate.  However
it seemed to me that it needed a little more looking after, maintenance
wise.  And Rob's comments regarding the state of the negative are
completely accurate, one needs to have the negative in a pliable/soft
state, not only so the sprocket holes are the correct size, but also the
pins go in smoothly!

And finally, the real difference between pin reg. and real time
steadiness is the twisting factor of the physical pins.
