    Doug- Actually there is a very good PW mechanic/distributor either in or near NJ and he shares the same first name with you. Try Doug Whiton at 603-588-4010.

    Doug,

    I'm in New Hampshire. Will need the help of UPS or FedEx unless you find yourself in the neighborhood. When I was truckin' I always budgeted at least 5-6 hours to get to the GW bridge.

    Doug,

    I had a similar problem with my 800 where it kept going out of time after a few rounds. Before going through the trouble of having someone else look at it you might try this: When you re-time the machine, instead of tightening the set screw in the same place, turn the die removal plate to a different location and tighten the set screws. I also found that getting these set screws as tight as possible was a big help.

    Hope this helps,

    John

    PW used to put one set screw on top of another to make sure they stayed tight. If your critical adjustments are locked by only one set screw you may want to try putting another on one top of it. Doesn't have to be killer tight but it really helps.
