This is the "vouching" step - after forming with the mould and decile, the fibers are drained and pressed onto layers of felts. They are then pressed. Some papermakers have machines for this, I put buckets of water onto the stack of fibers , called a post. Leave the pressure on usually overnight while the water drained out and the fibers tighten together. Someday, I'll make a Press too.
