I have a nice fax machine only a few months old doing a typical , nasty thing with paper.
  When multiple sheets are loaded on the feeder , it pulls 10% of sheet # 1 and then takes #1 and #2 sheets in tandom on through the feeder.  The paper is not of poor quality and I see one primary roller as the only culpret I can think of.  The roller seems moist and modrately rough but not very sand paper like.

What makes paper stick together this way beyond moisture and what factors makes rubber do this ???
 I feel as if I should blame the paper as left out too long and getting too moist.   What should I try to isolate and diagnose this problem ???

before putting the paper inthe printer, you should fan it open from bothe sides, so the sticky parts get separated.
you can test if the paper is the cause in another printer too..
