Standard equipment includes a one shot type lubrication system. The reservoir for this is located on the right hand leg
of the Shear. Check to be sure there is an ample supply of oil (see Lubrication Plate on Shear) in the reservoir. The
operating handle is located on top of the reservoir pull handle to actuate the lubrication system. This should be done
twice a day when using Shear. Grease fittings are provided on each back gauge holder and should be serviced daily
with a chassis lubricant MILG10924. Four grease fittings for bearings on flywheel shaft and intermediate shaft are
located on R.H. housing at gear cover. These four fittings should be serviced once every three months. At the same
interval, you should lubricate the face of the gear teeth located on the right hand end of the shear under the gear guard
cover. Oil or grease counterbalance spring guide rods at top of cross head under leg caps.
OPERATE ONLY WITH ALL SAFETY DEVICES, SHIELDS AND COVERS IN PLACE - SHUT
OFF POWER TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS.
Move Clutch cycle control lever "F", Fig. 7, to correct position "Back" position for single cycle operation or
"Forward" position for continuous operation.
Set back gauge to desired width of cut.
Turn on power and allow time f6r flywheel to reach normal speed.
D. Position sheet to insure a square cut, use care to locate sheet metal positively against back gauge and side
gauge. Sheets narrower than full width of Shear should be cut on right side of Shear.
E. Depress treadle to shear stock. During long cutting runs, an occasional wiping of the blades with an oil
soaked rag will serve to reduce wear and help prevent "buildup" when shearing aluminum, stainless or galvanized.
WARNING: Shut off power before oiling blades.
Brake, Fig. 4, is. located on left hand side of the main shaft and is accessible with the front panel removed. Brake
should be tight enough to insure cross head stopping
