Dear Jonathan, Greetings from The Bronx, Perhaps your problem is
not that the music books are sticking, but that the rubber pinch
rollers are not doing their proper job.
- How old are those rollers, and have they ever been replaced (or
recovered with new rubber)? With age they may have become hard and
less able to grip the cardboard.
- Is there an adjustment to put more pressure on the rollers so that
they can grip the books tighter?
- If this is a keyed system, the keys may be adding additional drag
to the books, and reducing each individual key pressure may help to
alleviate the problem.
Hope this helps,
