    Default How do i change the drive wheels....


    Found you via Google, while searching for instructions to change the dog-wheels/drive wheels on my auto taper. Never did find that.

    Hi Lightrock

    Right then, the drive dog is fairly easy to reapir, the dog comes as a complete assembily. Your best source for one is Certified Tool Solutions in Atlanta GA, they will mail it to you, their number is 001 770 218 6050 and the guy there is Craig.

    To get the dog assembly off you need to turn it in the opporsite direction the the way it goes and it will screw off. you will need to lift the dog roller over the teeth on the sprocket driver as you turn it back on it's self to get it off. Then all you need to do is screw the new assembelry on.

    Give me a call if you have any questions on 00 44 7854 795 225

    that was a nice concise answer to the wrong question. What i ought to have asked was, how do i change the taper wheels on the taper wheel spool. it hadn't occured to me that what my boss once called "the wheel that drives the taper mechanism.. ya know the dog wheel" was the other end of the main chain. i assumed the wheel that was driving it was the one i pressed into the tape. Anyway, after consulting with Allwall ( they called me about my cries for help too) I will just finish the job i am on and send it in for a refurbishment. It has been 4 years, it's earned one. Teh 'bazooka' I use is a Blue 2 by Blue Line USA, and is practically identical in schematic to the Tapetech.
    Thanks for the help David.
    if i actually do need to change that dog wheel someday, now i know
