Construction and Parts
Multiple wheels are held precisely in position by retaining pawls and retaining pawl springs. A retaining pawl seats in the index plate on each of the one piece wheels. This one-piece construction assures more accurate stamping than those obtainable with two-piece wheels. A pawl block further aids in maintaining wheel alignment. The wheels are engraved for accuracy, strength and alignment. Crafted from high grade tool steel, they are precision heat treated for severe usage and long life. Unlike less rugged designs of other manufacturers, we optimize our frame designs to be compatible with the number of wheels desired by increasing the frame and leg width. All 5/32″ – 1/4″ machines are constructed using larger diameter wheels, wheel shafts and frames. Hand shank frames are constructed of heat-treated high grade alloy steel to resist chipping. The hand shank is vinyl coated to absorb shock during the marking operation when the shank is struck with a hammer blow.
