  • Turn Pans and...Jams

    Ever watch the pins transfer in the turn pan to the belts?I had a pesky t.p.jam machine and watched the transfer of pins and found that by pulling downward on the turn pan some, the transfer was GREAT and i then removed the and...bent the tongue for t.p. down(tword the bottom of c.c. slide plate)about 3/8 to 1/4 inch.Ran for almost 2 months then it settled back to it's problem position.Is what i have also done is to put a small piece of wood shim under the tongue and then it transfers super again.,then remove my cams.Of course i checked pin guide etc.Just try holding your turn pan down some and see the effect it makes.Now the guys dont screw up adjustments elsewhere.Turn pans bend over time and need t.l.c. too.

    I've yet to see one bend on its own...but when pinchasers clean them, they let them slam back to their original position. I'm sure this doesn't help them to keep the adjustment correct.

    Just my two cents worth...

      I don't know how old your machines are, but look at the pinwheel buttons. My machines are 40 yrs old, some of my problems were in the pinwheel as the buttons wear(flattens) the problem you describe can happen with wear. If you can find a good welder to try filing the flat spot on button or replace them.

      just my theory
