ROUTINE MAINTENANCE

DRIVE ROLLS AND GUIDE TUBES
After feeding every coil of wire, inspect the drive roll
section. Clean it as necessary. Do not use a solvent
for cleaning the idle roll because it may wash the lu-
bricant out of the bearing. The drive roll, idle roll and
guide tubes are stamped with the wire sizes they will
feed. If a wire size other than that stamped on the rolls
is to be used, the rolls and guide tubes must be
changed.
The drive rolls for .045 and .052 cored electrode and
