So, this is where paper weights get weird, because paper weight actually doesn't have anything to do with paper thickness.
Epson Premium Presentation Paper Matte, which is the paper I use, is considered 48lb paper, and it's 179gsm. It's actual caliper thickness is 9.8 mils. The Ultra Premium Presentation Paper Matte is 51lbs, 192 gsm, and something like 10.3 mils.
Meanwhile, 80lb cover stock can have a thickness of 7.6 mils, which means despite a heavier basis weight for the paper, it's actually thinner per sheet than the 48 pound photo paper I use.
See if you can find information on the "caliper" or "mils" of the paper you want to use, and compare that to what's officially supported by the machine. It's a much more useful comparison than the basis weight of the paper, which actually has nothing to do with how thick the paper is.
i believe paper weight is defined by the weight of 2000 sheets. gsm is grams per square meter or something. a box of 2000 sheets of normal 20 lb copy paper is 20 lbs. a box of 2000 sheets of 110 lb cardstock is 110 lbs.
trivia, i work with many many different weight boxes at work all day, and i can say, a normal box of 2000 sheets of copy paper is heavy for its size. 20 lbs for a box the size of a recliner is extremely light and likely has a cushion or table chair inside. however, a box half or even quarter the size at 50 lbs is quite heavy when you have to repeatedly lift them. that being said, 110 lbs is no joke. we still load stuff of this weight all the time, heavier even. but most things that weigh this much that are at all liftable are almost impossible to lift without another person. i will say 110 lb office cabinets are fairly common in the office cabinet range, and they arent the heaviest thing we lift. the heaviest things we lift to chest height are about 180 lbs, but this is rare. only the stupid will lift 110 lb stuff by themselves.

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
