Adjusting for Tag Thickness on the Model 4 and Model 6
It is crucial that when making a mark with your Model 4 or Model 6, the operating handle should not be pulled down past the 9 o'clock (horizontal) position. This will control the depth of mark and avoid bending the depth adjustment screw and breaking the ram.
To determine if the machine requires adjustment:
1. With the character dial on the machine, pull down on the operating handle (32-33). If the handle can drop below the 9 o'clock (horizontal) position, you need to adjust the depth adjustment screw (39-44) clockwise until this is no longer possible.
