Construction and Parts
Multiple wheels are held precisely in position by retaining pawls and retaining pawl springs. A retaining pawl seats 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 meticulously engraved for accuracy, strength, and alignment. Crafted from high grade tool steel, they are precision heat treated for severe usage and long life. Unlike the 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.
The Model 70P can be adapted to virtually any press. Our standard shank is 1″ x 1-1/4″ or 1” x 2.” We offer a standard dovetail shank to fit Numberall’s hand and power presses or Model 116 Dovetail Adapter. We can make custom round or rectangular shanks. We can omit the shank and provide tapped mounting holes or install a custom designed adapter. We also can leave the top flat so the customer can drill and tap or mount an adapter.
