Switch Push Rod Assembly and

Finger Adjustments

Tools needed: 3/8" Open End Wrench Pliers

Unplug machine from power source. Remove Bumper Plate and Drum. To right of measuring wheel you will see Switch and Bracket Assembly (FF112). The Push Rod Assembly resets this switch (FF112). To make sure this adjustment is right, the lifter pin on the casting assembly should reset on the movable shear and the finger should move freely in the slot. When the blade and finger are down, the push rod should reset the switch. The switch should not be reset until the finger is below the tape path where the finger protrudes through the opening in the lower tape plate. If an adjustment must be made, use your 3/8" open end wrench to loosen the locking nut. Screw down or up on the push rod to make proper adjustment, then hold it with your pliers and re tighten the locking nut with the 3/8" wrench. After the adjustment is made, approximately 1/64" clearance should remain between the bottom of the rod and the top of the switch button after the switch has been actuated by the push rod.
