III. PRELIMINARY INFORMATION
Carefully remove the protective crating and skid so that the machine and parts are not marred, scratched or
otherwise damaged. in the event of any damage in transit, report it immediately. The machine should be
lifted from the base of the crate by placing a sling under the overarm.
Inspect the complete shipment carefully against the itemized packing list to make sure that all items are
present. In the event shortages are noticed they should be reported immediately, with a clear indication as
to which parts have not been received.
Thoroughly clean the rust preventive materials from the machine with gasoline, kerosene, or other suitable
solvents. Do not move the table, saddle, knee or other moving parts until all of the sliding way surfaces
have been well cleaned and lubricated. After cleaning carefully move to. a limit stop in one direction the
table, saddle and knee, and clean and lubricate the exposed way surfaces. Then move each of these units
to the opposite limit stop and similarly clean and lubricate the exposed way surfaces. Loosen the four bolts
to unlock the overarm and move this forward and backward to the extreme position in order to clean and
For best performance it is important that the machine be placed on a solid foundation and that it be level. A
solid concrete floor is desirable, but a firm wooden floor, free from vibration, may be suitable. If the
machine is to be located on an upper floor or balcony it should be placed as close as possible to a strong
supporting pillar or column.
The machine is provided with four bolt holes one at each corner of the base. Steel wedges or steel plates
should be used for leveling. A good machinist's level should be used in the leveling process and the bubble
should have adequate time to come to rest. The level should be placed both lengthwise and crosswise on
the machine table.
F. VERTICAL HEAD ON OVERARM: (EXPORT ONLY)
The is positioned on the overarm with the spindle up and the motor down. Before operating the machine it
is necessary that the head be returned to its normal operating position by loosening the 4-5/8 hexagonal
nuts located at the head end of the overarm. It will then be possible to tilt the head into normal operating
position by using a crank on the 1 in stud located on the right side of the front end of the overarm. Because
of the heavy overhung weight involved,.the tilting of the head back to its normal position will be greatly
facilitated i fa second person can help push it into position. The head may then be trammed in as described
G. VERTICAL HEAD ON OVERARM
The vertical head is tilted back on the overarm. Before operating the machine it is necessary that the head
