Had an email this morning asking how the cutter head for our machine is held in place without the flip-over lever the Townsend uses. It is a great question and our answer is simple. We changed the entire drive and gear system around on the Ault’s Wool Fabric Cutting machine. Our machine drives the top gear of the cutter head instead of the botton one. So, cranking the machine is all that is needed to hold the cutterhead in place.
Simple, huh? Come back tomorrow for another question and answer about our Ault machine.
