■ Follow carefully the instructions given in the machine handbook.
■ Never fit a wheel which is loose or too tight on the flange.
■ Ensure that blotters are used (either glued to the wheel faces or fitted loose).
■ Tighten only with the tool supplied with the machine.
■ Ensure the wheel is properly gripped to prevent slippage, but do not tighten with excessive force. Never use a hammer.
■ Keep flanges and screw threads clean and free of burrs and rust.
■ Replace distorted or damaged flanges before fitting the wheel.
■ Run all wheels after fitting for at least 30 seconds at operating speed keeping behind the guard in case the wheel breaks.
■ Refer to the FEPA recommended mounting check list.
