Place the machine so that any overhead light will strike the table over the operator's right shoulder
when he is in position for cutting. The machine should be centrally located for your cutting needs.
`Provide sufficient clearance around the machine for handling large pieces of material.
A 3/4 in. NC tapped hole is provided in the upper surface of the machine head. Use a forged 3/4-10
NC eye-bolt screwed into this hole for lifting the machine. Net weight of Model 2614-1 is approxi-
mately 2500 Ibs.
Remove rear drive housing. Carefully remove all protective coverings, strapping, and the
skid. Unfasten the hold down bracket for the power feed weight.
A rust-preventive coating has been applied to all exposed bare metal surfaces. Remove
this coating with solvent. Inspect the machine for broken or damaged parts.
Bring the leads of the line circuit to the electrical enclosure on the machine column. Refer to the
wiring diagram furnished with the machine.
Jog the start button intermittently and open the door over the lower band wheel. Check to see if
the wheel is turning clockwise. If it is turning counterclockwise, reverse any two of the connections.
Overload protection is provided. Under ordinary conditions this will be ample protection. If the
machine is started and stopped a number of times in rapid succession, the overload relay may kick
out. Let the relay cool for a few minutes before starting the machine again.
Before the machine is bolted into position, or whenever the machine is moved, the alignment should
be checked and the machine shimmed.
Place machine in desired location. Use 1/4 in. spacers between the floor and the base
mounting pads of the machine.
Shim under the pads as required until the machine is level and bears evenly on all pads.
Uniformity of bearing can be checked by tapping on the spacers with a bar or hammer.
