How to Space Text Using Model 40B

To start, here is how to space text using Model 40B:

Numberall Space Text Using Model 40B

  1. Before making any adjustments, make sure you don’t start stamping the line with the first pull of the operating handle.
  2. Push the table over, then pull the handle down until you hear a click. Go about halfway to produce a blank space.
  3. Return the handle and turn the knob to the desired character to start stamping.

If you need to make adjustments to Model 40B for spacing, here is how you will make them:

  1. Remove the entire table assembly. To do this, push the red handle down and pull the table off to the left.
  2. Check the tip of the spacing pawl. It should have an edge on it and not be rounded over. If it’s rounded over, you can use a file to put an edge on it.
  3. Move the red handle up and down to ensure the spacing pawl moves up and down. If it doesn’t, you may have a missing spacing pawl spring.
  4. Turn the table over and check the spacing rack to ensure that the teeth are the same all the way across. They shouldn’t have any grooves or worn spots in them.
  5. Make sure the friction spring is installed on the spacing rack.
  6. After examining the spacing pawl and rack, the spacing adjustment screw may have to be adjusted.
  7. Turn the depth of impression screw out to ensure the press is making a complete stroke and make sure you’re hitting the tab.
  8. If the spacing adjustment screw needs to be changed, loosen the lock nut with a 7/16 wrench. After making adjustments, remember to tighten the lock nut.
  9. If double spacing, turn the screw out to raise the table at the resting position.
  10. If not spacing, turn the screw in to lower the table to the resting positon.

Spare Parts and Maintenance for Model 40B

  • Table Inserts are common replacement items because they slowly warp over time from the repeated pounding. The table insert can be moved fore and aft for line spacing.
  • Character Dials are meticulously engraved with 42 characters and heat-treated to last. You can choose from 1/16”, 3/32”, 1/8”, 5/32”, and 3/16” character sizes.
  • Spacing Racks. Character dials are interchangeable with the addition of different spacing racks. Extra-long tables and spacing racks are available for larger parts.
  • Nests and Strip Holders. We also manufacture different sized nests and strip holders to make operation even simpler. All you have to do is drop or slide the tag into the nest or strip holder and start marking.
  • Light Oil. An oil hole is provided on the front of the press just below the spacing adjustment screw. A few drops of light oil should be applied here if bearing surfaces appear dry. Lubricate once a day if used continuously.
  • Dry Lubricant. Use dry lubricant to grease the character dial surface that is against dial plate, the table insert guides, and the table dovetail strip. Do not use oil.
