Hey Everyone - I tried various Google searches and could not find this specifically addressed here previously -

After many years, I still have a frequent problem when side-jogging a card, for example: as I press up on the face of the card to be jogged and push it sedeways, MANY cards come out the side.
Erdnase speaks of "overcoming friction" but I don't quite see what he was saying!
I guess I ned to better control the pressures or something - Any thoughts?

Thanks -
Brian

Try a lighter touch and make sure your hands aren't either too dry or two wet. There have been many threads about this subject, but since the search engine is down and the more common problem is dry hands (especially in winter), I will recommend that you try Pacquin Plus, Skinners Edge Card Cream, or Golden Touch spray. Make sure you are using good quality cards in good condition.
