|1/4" air hose is used (same as used at service stations).
operating air pressure: 80 lbs. maximum -- 60 lbs. minimum.
We suggest the use of an air regulator and gauge to control the pressure, in addition
to the usual shut-off valve in the air line -- the reason being that it is not possible to
control the pressure with the shut-off valve, as it merely restricts the flow and the
pressure remains the same.
Regulator and gauge should be placed in the air line near the operation, but not
attached to the shaper due to the weight.
Use of the lubricator supplied with each shaper is recommended to keep the valve and
cylinder well lubricated.
Speed of cylinder stroke can be controlled by two screws located on the side of valve
directly below operator's finger tips when hand is on valve handle and trigger.
Shaper adjustments are the same as those required on an Armstrong 5700 Series Hand
