Q. How can I adjust the pressure arm location?
A. Its location can be adjusted with the pressure arm adjustment knob. But note that it is highly sensitive in its functioning. Huge changes can be made with slight movement of the knob.
Q. What should I do if my slitter stalls?
A. If slitter stalls for more than 5 seconds, check for the following possible problems:
- Tripped breaker (look for the source of machine bind and correct. Push in breaker to reset)
- Obstruction in blades
- Dead electrical outlet
Q. I am getting oil residue on my inserted sheets. How can I get rid of those?
A. Finding oil residue on the starting pieces of input is normal. You can remove it with the unprinted stock.
Q. Can I insert the input into the slitter while it is on?
A. No, it should only be done while it is ‘off’. Loading the stock while the slitter is working might result into personal injury or any sort of damage to the machine.
