The condition and appearance of tool bags should be maintained
to the usual IBM standards of appearance. Frequent condi-
tioning of bags with Saddle Soap will clean, polish and condition
the bag, as well as maintain a good appearance. Clean bags
will also save clothing.


Two simple steps are suggested for cleaning and conditioning
a bag with Saddle Soap.

1. Use a shoe polish applicator brush and apply in sidewise
strokes, leaving streaks or lines of Saddle Soap all over
the bag.

2. Use a cloth such as cheese cloth, and rub in circular
motion. If a bag is kept clean, the same cloth can be
used over and over and will work better after it has
absorbed some Saddle Soap.
Neither applicator brushes nor Saddle Soap will be available
from Poughkeepsie. Branch offices should purchase them

A simple method for removing a carriage tension tape and
still maintain carriage tension is to insert the tapp, in the
carriage return tape. With the return tape unhooked, the
carriage can then be checked for possible binds.
