UNCRATING AND SETTING UP:
After removal from crate, machine should be located on solid foundation and securely fastened in place. Be sure all
equipment belonging to machine is removed from crate. This should consist of:
1-Handle for tightening vise jaws
1-Wrench for tensioning blade
1-1/4 set screw wrench for blade holder
1-Length gage, assembled, for cutting multiple pieces of same length
This fits in bored hole on side of right rear vise jaw
2-Lengths flexible hose for coolant
1-Standard front blade holder with tightening nut and blade bolt
1-Spacer block used in front of blade holder. (1212 & 1216 & 1415)
2-Splash aprons for drip pan
SPEED AND ROTATION:
Motor rotation should be in accordance with direction of arrow on machine belt guard. The large pulley should run
counterclockwise when facing the machine from the side on which the large pulley is located.
OILING AND FILLING:
Machine is shipped with hydraulic system filled. Make sure no oil has leaked out in- transit by checking oil level on
gauge at the back of the machine. This gauge should always show about 1/4" to H" of oil. If more oil is needed, fill
through screw plug on top of gear box cover. Any good grade of oil, as recommended by the manufacturers for hydraulic
machine use, viscosity 200 S.S.U. at 100F is suitable. Machine is shipped with hydraulic system filled with medium oil.
If machine is located in cold place, use lighter grade oil. In running machine, always keep hydraulic system FILLED by
adding a quart or more of oil as needed. Drain out old oil after about 600 hours of actual running time. If running time is
intermittent, drain and refill every six months. System holds about seven gallons. Drain plug is located on side of base
below drive pulley.
Other oil cups and holes for lubricating machine. (See Lubrication Chart.)
Remove control lever cover and oil all moving parts once a month.
CONTROL LEVER (200287) which extends beyond front of machine, has four positions: Up Clutch, Rest and Down.
Place this lever in Rest position and start motor. Raise lever to Up position by pushing it slightly to right and raising
rapidly through Clutch position. This will cause saw frame to rise to highest point.
By RELEASING control lever before saw frame has reached highest point the automatic knockout device will trip the
lever returning it to Rest position when the frame has reached its highest point. If the control lever is held continuously in
Up position until the saw frame has reached its highest point, then knockout device will not operate, and it will be
necessary to push lever to right and force downward to Rest position.
Move saw frame up and down several times to remove any air that may be trapped in the main cylinder. The lowering of
frame is accomplished by pushing control lever downward to its lowest point or to Down position. It will be noted that
when lever is released in Down position, it automatically returns to Rest position by spring pressure.
