Here’s How The TRM-100 Manual Trim Station works:
- The Tube is manually inserted into the “V” shaped tube guide on the machine base. The “V” centers the tube in the cutting station. The “V” can slide in/out by loosening the Allen screw on top. The base of the tube should be concentric with the blue plastic ring. Once the tube base is concentric it will be centered in the trim station. Use the provided Allen wrench to tighten after any adjustments.
- Once the tube is centered in the “V” the operator can adjust the height of the trim by sliding the entire trim station up/down.
- There is a “course” adjustment which is controlled by the Black lever of the right side of the trim station. The entire station can be raised or lowered and the correct height is determined by comparing the top of the tube with the internal razor sharp blade. Once the approximate height is determined it can be locked in place.
- There is a “Fine” adjustment that is controlled by the round black knurled knob. Rotating the knob will slightly raise or lower the trim station.
