How to Setup The M1 Roll Swaging Machine

Welcome back to Loos Tube

Today you’ll learn how to assemble our LOCOLOC M1 Swaging Machine

Your M1 swaging machine comes neatly packaged in a metal tool box

Along with an operator’s manual and two allen wrenches for adjustment

Refer often to your operator’s manual

The manual contains instructions and images that will assist you through every step of setup and use

You will also find guidance for troubleshooting the machine, instructions for maintenance, and other helpful tips

Begin by removing your machine from the toolbox and lay it lengthwise on your workspace

Now prepare your set of dies

First identify whether you are swaging straight shank fittings or ball ends and select the proper die type

The die sets for straight shank fittings are circular with a groove along the edge that will hold the fitting

Dies for ball type ends are square shaped with grooves in each corner

The corners are labeled one through four to assist in the swaging process

Now choose the proper size dies with a cable diameter you will be swaging

Each box of dies contains an upper and lower die which are clearly marked

Place the upper and lower dies onto the machine

There is a key match to ensure that the dies will be properly installed

Now secure the dies with the included flat washer and cap screws

But do not overtighten

Simply turn by hand until the fit is snug

This will allow for the dies to move slightly if necessary and align properly with the fitting

Refer to your manual to select the correct feed guide and adapter for the terminal you will be swaging

If you are swaging ball ends, remove this adapter all together

Place the feed guide onto the machine and use the included allen wrench to secure it

Be sure not to fully tighten one side before the other

Alternate between them to ensure proper alignment

Your LOCOLOC M1 swaging machine is now ready to use
