INSTRUCTIONS FOR CORRECT MACHINE ALIGNMENTThe following needs to be done when the machine's heater is off. Always check Printer Is In Correct Alignment then Adjust accordingly. With the Chase and print block in place on the Print Head, unlock all four wing nuts - freeing them allows for any necessary adjustments. Next bring Platen up to impact with the Chase and the print handle down in locked position.
Now switch on. The card/item should now be sandwiched between the the Print Head and Platen. Gradually tighten up the screws, applying even pressure on all sides until they touch the back of the Print Head, and become flush with the Printing Block.
When you want to change the print block with another description, simply and carefully scrape off the existing block with a nail file or sharp instrument, taking care not to unduly scratch the chase.
