Driver Clearance Adjustment

This adjustment prevents excessive lateral movement or binding between the
driver and housing. This adjustment may be performed with the feeder either
on the machine or removed from the machine and placed on a work surface.
Prerequisites:
Feeder Preliminary Forward Stroke Adjustment
To adjust the driver clearance, perform the following procedure.

1.Power down the machine and perform Lockout/Tagout according to local procedures.

2.Remove the feeder cover.

3.Extend the forward stroke until the cutters are approximately flush as shown. Insert a .001 inch (0.02 mm) feeler gauge between the driver
   and the feeder housing as illustrated.

4.Remove the set screw.  Apply Loctite 222 to the set screw, and adjust the set screw until the gap between the driver and housing is .001 inch
(0,02mm), as shown in the illustration.  Do not overtighten or the feeler gauge will be difficult to remove.

   End of procedure
