Feeder

The assembly drawing lists 3 different pulley combinations and the speed range (cuts / minute) each is capable of providing. These are by no means complete. A different customer (Foster Forbes Glass) used 20:26 tooth ratio gearing to give an overall 13:1 reduction ratio. This allowed them to use the same gearing on all production machines (6, 8, and 10 sections) and required only one size spare to be carried in inventory for the entire factory.

CAUTION: When mounting the proximity switch on the feeder, do not take the easy way and mount it in less heat on the plunger cam. If you do, the drop will be differentialed to the plunger instead of the shears and go out of time whenever the plunger differential is adjusted to change the drop shape.
