4. Bobbins loaded with Thread
5. Wooden Catch Board
6. Length Adjustment Screws
7. Steel Rack & Pinion
8. Cast Iron Handle
9. Iron lever of Catch Board
10. Ready Candles
|II. SETTING UP THE MACHINE:|
PLEASE FOLLOW THE START UP INSTRUCTIONS IN THE ORDER THAT
THEY ARE PRINTED.
|III. LOADING THE BOBBINS:|
|All wooden bobbins should be kept ready and loaded with
Bobbins may be loaded from hanks of thread with the help of Thread Winding Attachment & thread stand (Both optional items).
One hank should be mounted on the thread stand and its end should be tied up with one wooden bobbin which in turn is fitted on the Thread Winding Attachment.
The Thread Winding Attachment will rotate the wooden bobbin, which will in turn unreel the hank of thread.
This way, the bobbins may be loaded to required quantity.
All the bobbins may be loaded and kept ready for first batch of production.
|IV. THREADING THE MACHINE:|
All the bobbins (loaded with thread) should be transferred to
the wooden base of the machine where locators are provided.
All the pipes should be threaded with the help of thin steel wire provided.
Prepare a loop at one end of the wire, insert it from the top end of the machine (from the upper opening of pipes from where the molten wax is poured) by bringing ejectors upward by rotating handle of the machine upto the plate level. Allow it to pass through the brass nozzles and steel pipes till it reaches the wooden bobbins. Now insert the end of thread in this loop and gently pull the wire upwards / back till the thread comes out at the top. Take out sufficient length of thread so that it does not fall back into the pipes.
When two nearby threads are pulled up they can be tied / knotted to each other so that both threads do not fall down and operator can proceed to thread other pipes.
In the above mentioned manner all the pipes should be threaded.
After threading all the pipes, bring down the ejectors back by rotating the handle of the machine in clock-wise direction.
|V. WATER COOLING:|
|Fill the water tank with water by connecting the lower inlet
opening to the water tap and let this water come out from the upper outlet after the tank
is full, thus maintaining the water circulation.
Better the water circulation quicker will be the cooling of candles.
CAUTION: DO NOT FIX THE INCOMING WATER PIPE AT THE UPPER OUTLET.
|VI. ADJUSTMENT OF LENGTH OF CANDLE:|
|The length of the candle can be set with the help of LENGTH
The length of candles desired can be set / controlled by turning the adjustment screw (bolt with nut) provided on both the sides of the machine.
By turning the screw upwards - length of the candles is REDUCED.
By turning the screw downwards - length of the candles is INCREASED.
Adjust the screw till desired length of candle is obtained and then set it with the nut and let it remain till required production is obtained.
|VII. LUBRICATION OF PIPES:|
|For initial start up, the BRASS PIPES should be oiled. Rotate
the Cast-Iron Handle of the machine in the anticlockwise direction till the ejector system
is raised fully and brass nozzles come out at the top of the pipes.
Apply coconut oil / caster oil on the entire outer surface of all brass nozzles (outer wall) with the help of a long bottle cleaner brush.
Now rotate the handle of the machine gently in the clock-wise direction so that the brass nozzles go down through the pipes. Since the nozzles are closely fit in the pipes, they will oil the inner surface of the brass pipes.
CAUTION: PLEASE LUBRICATE THE BRASS PIPE AFTER EVERY 5-7 BATCHES OF PRODUCTION.
|VIII. POURING OF WAX:|
|On a separate STOVE / GAS BURNER / ELECTRIC HOT-PLATE /
FURNACE keep the Paraffin Wax ready in a molten state in a large vessel. Keep the pressure
/ supply of energy adjusted such that the wax remains molten at all times without either
BOILING or SOLIDIFYING.
Now swiftly pour the molten wax on the slope plate, from where the wax will itself fill in all the brass pipes. Enough wax should be poured so that there is a thick layer of wax above the upper surface of the plate / pipes as this will ensure completely filled pipes and solid candles and will help prevent SHRINKAGE in candles.
Now allow the candles to cool for about 5 to 7 minutes, till they solidify properly and do not bend or get deshaped when ejected.
|IX. REMOVAL OF EXCESS WAX & EXCESS THREAD:|
|The excess wax lying on the upper surface of the brass pipes
should now be scraped / removed with the help of the long knife provided.
The scraped solidified wax should be added back to the wax melting vessel since it is REUSABLE.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SCRAPPING OF WAX IS REQUIRED ONLY ONCE, WHEN PRODUCTION IS STARTED FOR THE FIRST TIME.
|X. EJECTION OF CANDLES:|
|After the cooling is completed, open the iron - lever of
wooden catch board at the top of the machine. By doing so the holes in the wooden
catch-board will expand.
Now operate the handle of the machine in the anticlockwise direction so that all the candles come upwards and go inside the expanded holes of the wooden catch board.
Close the iron lever of the catch board so that the candles are caught / held in the wooden catch board.
Bring back / rotate back the handle of machine in original position so that all ejectors go down.
|XI. REMOVAL OF CANDLES:|
|Before removing the candles from wooden catch-board pour
molten wax from the slope plate as described in Step No: VIII to produce second batch of
candles. While the second batch of candles is cooling, the first batch has to be removed
from the machine / catch board.
Cut the threads of the candles, which are in the wooden catch board with the help of long knife provided.
Now open the iron lever of catch board so that the holes expand and candles are released from it. The candles are now ready and may be dispatch for packing.
|XII. SECOND BATCH OPERATION:|
|The second batch of candles is allowed to cool for 5 to 7
minutes. Then excess wax is scraped, catch board is opened, the candles are brought
up and held in wooden catch board.
Before cutting thread, wax for the next lot should be poured and allowed to cool down for 5 to 7 minutes before cutting the thread of the ready candles and scrapping away the excess wax. This way the process is to be repeated.
|XIII. SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS:|
1. Do nut cut threads of candles before pouring wax for the
next batch of candles to avoid the re-threading of the pipes unnecessarily.
2. If ever the ejectors / machine is jammed do not apply excessive force on the machine. Do not heat it machine either to remove the wax. Just pour boiling water in the water tank to release the wax that is stuck in the brass pipes.
3. To avoid rejects, watch out for empty bobbins. When thread in the bobbin is almost over, remove it from the bobbin stand and tie the end of the thread with the end of freshly loaded bobbins and replace with the new bobbin. This way threading operation with the loop will be avoided.
4. While stopping production of the machine at the end of the shift or day or for a long period, leave the last batch of candles in brass pipes itself. This will avoid re-threading of the machine and also any damage to the brass pipes from dust etc.
5. In case the brass nozzles / ejectors are clogged with wax, they can be cleared with the help of a thick wire provided (slightly thicker than the loop wire) for this purpose.
6. Apply grease / oil daily to machine.
7. Do not pour boiling wax in the machine as it will jam the machine.
8. Due to climate change, if the candles caught in the wooden catch-board start breaking or if the candles cannot be caught at all, the clamping can be adjusted by changing the NUT-BOLTS on the Iron Lever from one hole to other.
