  • Smelly Turning Wheels

    Has anyone else noticed strong fumes coming from their March 2008 TW. I opened mine up to read all the great articles and I could barely keep it open in front of me. I've noticed a little smell before, but this is REALLY bad! I wonder what's going on. Killer ink?

    Yep, the odor of the center color section nearly knocked me flat! I thought some horribly mildewed item had surfaced in the house somehow. Let it air out on the patio overnight, seemed to help. Hopefully that won't happen again!

        I had to go back and sniff to smell what you were talking about. The color page ink does have a different smell but it didn't yank my attention when I first perused it.

        I bet you guys received it weeks earlier than I did and the ink was fresher.

                Yes, nasty! I'm going to throw my next few issues in my car while in storage for the rest of this winter and see if they repel mice! They might make sleeping bags out of the Bounce sheets, but this will kill them. Seriously, what's with that odor, ink wrung from old socks?

                    I haven't received mine yet. But it sounds ok to me as long as the this years coverage of the PSMD issue smells like rubber.[]

                            Yeah, I noticed the smell right away too, it really stinks. But it's well worth putting up with it for all the good content it has.
