Clamshell die cutters are fairly low maintenance if taken care of properly. Here are some tips for daily maintenance.
First, make sure the flywheel is turned off.
- Clean the front and side area of the press
- Remove debris from the rocker and cam area
- Check for oil leaks and loose bolts
- Be sure all safeties are working
- Take note of any squeaks, knocks or other unusual sounds
- Find lost screws if they’re dropped
- Inspect the press frequently, making sure it’s level
