    Dear fellow printers
    I've a problem with adjusting the lower form roller. I installed an original roller with the standard diameter shown on the manual, I had to sqeeze it hard against the oscillsting roller and it bangs at the cylinder gap.I grinded the old roller by 1 mm and it doesn't reach the plate cylinder anymore.
    The problem is that the range of adjustment on the eccentric on either direction is very little-about 2mm. Unlike the upper one, which caused no problems.
    How can I fix the eccentric screw or adjust the oscillating roller? I checked the springs, they're fine.

    Chock think he has a 8810 as listed in his profile. The 8810 is loosely based on the old 360. 8810 uses a slightly larger dia form 2 15/32" vs the 360 2 3/32". Length are both the same. It's possible some parts have been swapped over the years. Or wrong rollers in press somehow. The overall pressure adjustment can be turned 180* out of parallel. This would make the roller have opposite adjustments as you try to set pressure. Like adding more will add less etc..... you'd need to 180* the shaft which is a easy fix. I'm not that well versed on the ABD 360's so hope others chime in for you.

    Dear fellow printers
    I'm trying modify an Abdick 8810 so that I can install the lower form roller
    (1) try to increase the range of eccentric screw to get more pressure
    (2) try to move the fixed oscillator roller located at the back of the form rollers because the roller size specified in the manual is too thick to fit into the machine

    Can you post a picture of the eccentric adjustments on your press? Is there a eccentric adjustment on each side (operator amd non operator) of just non operator? Some use springs on the form collars. You could possibly replace a slightly longer spring to give you a little more play to fit a larger diameter form in.

    Thanks for your reply
    There are eccentric adjustments on each side. There are springs on the collars. They're in good condition.
    What about the fixed oscillator roller. Could its position be adjusted somehow?
