Perfectly adjust the rise and fall of all three positions of your slip joint folder blade to make it “walk and talk”. When properly used, the spring will be in perfect height of liners with blade across all three positions. The ingenious spring retracting device allows you to quickly, easily, and safely remove the blade to make adjustments. Dial indicator allows you to set perfect spring tension and amount of material to remove on each axis of the blade for perfect fitting. Simplifies blade fitting to a higher degree of accuracy than rise and fall fixtures. No more guess work.

Thoughtfully designed features include:

  • Precision machining of all parts to assure accurate measurements.
  • Mount to bench using 1/4-20 socket head cap screws (not included).

Hole Alignment Spacers

  • Three Precision Ground Spacers provide a level work surface.
  • Each spacer has 1.5” of parallel alignment along the length of the blade and turns 360° allowing access to multiple holes for maximum flexibility.
