if the spindle speed range lever (see figure 48)
is positioned in low "l", the four spindle speeds
listed in the black indicator are available. if the
range lever is positioned in high "h", the four spin-
dle speeds listed in the red indicator are available.
the spindle speed lever shown in figure 48 has
eight speed selections depending on if the spindle
speed range lever is in high or low.
When in low range, the available spindle speeds
are 70, 115, 190, and 300, and when in high
range, the available speeds are 460, 755, 1255,
To change the spindle speed:

Move the spindle speed range lever to the
right for high range or left for low range.
Move the spindle speed lever to the left so it
is over the required speed, for example 1200
rpM is being selected in figure 48.
—When the range lever is in high, the speeds
in the red band are available.
—When the range lever is in low, the speeds
in the black band are available.
