  • ELIMINATES wasted time getting on your hands and knees, open the door with a tool, jogging the machine to the desired position, loosening the clamp coupling in an hard to reach area, grabbing the gathering chain and heaving it toward the stitcher, tightening the clamp coupling which has now rotated to a different position, close the door while standing back up to re-try another book to check delivery and having to repeat the process until delivery is good. Now, all of this is done with a selector switch.
