  • Elevator adjustment

    Does anybody out there have an easy way to lower the elevator frame?

    Billman:

    I use a split rim tire tool (WHICH HAS A HOOK END ON IT), use it to pry up elevator, insert a maple or any other hardwood wedge, and use an air chisel to cut out washers, one at a time.
    First time with the chisel may be trying, but with a little practice one can usually lower an elevator in ten to fifteen min.
    Don't cut out bottom big washer, its there to clear the square on the carraige bolt.

      Maintain 1/8 to 3/16" height between a straightedge, resting on carpet and carpet clamping plate, and the ball wheel- best measured with an allen wrench of the chosen size
