Authenticity of customer reviews
Each review is checked for authenticity before it is published, ensuring that reviews only come from consumers who have actually purchased/used the reviewed products. Since Feb 01 2022, we have been using the features of our store system to collect product reviews. Each rating is manually checked by us before publication and only released after successful verification that the customer has actually purchased the product (comparison of the rating with the order history in our merchandise management system). Until Jan 31 2022, we collected product ratings via the external provider Trusted Shops. Here, individualized links were transmitted to the respective consumer after completion of an online order, which led to an online rating form and ensured that access to the rating function was only granted to consumers who actually purchased the product.

Below you can see questions that other customers have asked about this product. Do you have a question of your own? Then feel free to ask us using the button below. You decide whether your question may be published.
Can one extend the range of the Gilding Tool using an extension cord?
Is the Gilding Tool to be plugged into the Thermostat socket for continuous use?
It is normal that the roller takes 1 hour to heat up to a temperature of 160º, and thus to be able to work optimally? I consider this to be a long time.
It is also possible to set the thermostat to maximum for heating. However, there is a risk that the core of the roll gets too hot (it should never be heated above 200 °C, otherwise the rubber will start to break down), so we do not recommend this procedure. If you do this, the temperature must be constantly monitored to avoid overheating.
Does the thermostat have to be switched off when the roller has reached the target temperature?
What kind of sand paper should I use?
You can use sandpaper with a grain size of 200/600/1200/2000. For more helpful tips, feel free to check out our tutorial: https://schmedt.com/guides-tutorials/edge-gilding-with-edge-gilding-roll
Can I also use real gold foil on my books?
When do I need to use the edge gilding primer?
As a side note: Primer for hand gilding (pure real gold, not a heat-sensitive foil) is not suitable for use with heat-sensitive (hot-stamping) foil, because the foil has heat-sensitive adhesive included, which is not compatible with that kind of primer.
How much pressure do I need to apply with the roller?
In the past, our foil that we sold required quite a lot of force to apply. Since December 2021, our edge gilding foil is much easier to apply.
If you are not using our old foil (or other foil such as hot stamping foil), a high amount of pressure may be required to make the foil stick. Therefore, you might have to place the edge gilding roll in your shoulder and really apply high pressure. Try to roll over repeatedly from different angles (e.g. flat, slight left angle, slight right angle). Once you think you are and feel like the book has been covered, carefully lift the foil and if you see it has not applied everywhere put it down and fix it to the same position to go over the parts that did not hold with the gilding roll again (if you were to use new foil, this would result in two layers of foil in some parts, which are visible in the end).
What is the ideal temperature?
