Blade Replacement Instruction

tool adjustments

  1. Turn the black blade adjusting knob counter-clockwise until it stops. The dial should read 0.
  2. Loosen the blade retaining screw with a 1/16 hex wrench and remove blade from the collar. (Fig.7)
  3. Insert a section of cable into the tool with the base of the scoring head resting on the cable OD. (Fig.8)
  4. Insert a new blade assembly through the collar with the flat of the shaft facing the screw. Drop the blade so it is resting on the cable OD. Re-tighten the blade holding screw against the flat portion of the blade shaft. (Fig.8)
  5. Re-adjust the blade to the desired depth setting.

Tool UpkeepSCS tool upkeep

  1. Keep the tool clean and dry.
  2. Occasionally apply a few drops of 3-in-1 or WD-40 oil under blade position knob in this corner shown to maintain smooth blade indexing.

Blade Alignment

The SCS tool is factory assembled for proper bladeSCS blade alignment registration and tracking. If blade replacement is necessary, the ring cut can be checked and adjusted for proper alignment. The SCS is designed with a blade alignment feature to ensure the ring cut will track squarely. If misalignment is determined, turn the blade alignment adjusting screw with a 1/8” hex wrench in the correct direction to bring the tool back to a properly tracking ring cut.
