VERIFYING FUNCTION/START -UP
1.) Set the unit on a tabletop where there will be access to all sides of the
machine. At least 18” would be ideal.
2.) Unravel the power cord a nd plug into wall. Unit should be plugged
into a 110/120VAC outlet, or a 220VAC outlet for the U.K. or European version.
3.) Turn on to verify electrical function. If no power, verify that the
socket is live by using some other device known to work. Repeat steps and
verify.
NOTE: If lack of power is direct result of a paper jam, check the 5A fuse
under the operator’s side cover. Fuse should be checked and potentially replaced
if there is any indication it might have blown, such as a paper jam, power surge,
etc.
At this point if there is still no electrical function, call your dealer or the Technical
Support Division at Martin Yale Industries, Inc. at 260-563-0641. Once power has been
verified, the unit can be assembled. Warning: failure to read the instructions for
assembly can cause damage to the unit.
The feed table is installed so that a cutout area on the bottom of the table fits onto the
pins on each side frame. NOTE: THE BOLT ON THE BACK PIN CANNOT BE
ADJUSTED. Begin by getting the front edge of the table in between the side frames at
the top of the machine. See Cover Photo. NOTE: DO NOT INSTALL PAPER GUIDES
UNTIL FEED TABLE IS ON UNIT.
Once this is done, begin bringing the table into the lower position, aligning the front
edge with the inner support pins. Once the feed table has been installed on the
machine, install the paper guides. Use the thumbnut on the bottom of the table to raise
the small red wheel so that it is touching the black one. There should not be any
pressure between them, just contact.

SECOND FOLD TABLE INSTALLATION
The second fold table should always be installed into the cavity beneath the feed table
(see photo 1). However, depending on the style of fold that is being done it can be
installed two ways. The aluminum deflector on the second fold table should be installed
facing the unit when there is going to be only one fold in the sheet. This is illustrated in
photo #2.
Photo 1
However, if there is going to be two folds in the sheet the aluminum deflector should
be facing out. To engage, simply position the table so that the two tie rods in between
the side frames of the machine will be in the cut-out grooves on the bottom of the fold
table (see photo #2). It is important that this is done because if the table is not properly
positioned, the machine will produce jams and inaccurate folds.
Photo 2
When installing the
second fold table for
a tri-fold, it should
be put in so that the
open end faces the
machine
When installing the
second fold table for a
half fold, it should be
put in so that the
deflector end faces
the machine.
When setting the folds for
the unit, be careful not to
over tighten the adjustment
knobs on the paper stops.

SETTING THE FEED SYSTEM
NOTE: A continuous run can only be done with single sheets, or properly stapled
sets.
1.
Lower the red wheel in the feed table until there is light between it and the black
one.
2.
Turn unit on. Hold piece of stock to be ran in between wheels. Slowly raise red
wheel until sheet is pulled in.
3.
Power down and set three pieces of stock to be tested in feed tray. Turn unit
back on, it should take them one at a time. If the sheets do not feed at all, the
red wheel is too high, if it tries to take more than one, the wheel is too low.
Readjust as necessary.
PROPER LOADING OF PAPER
To properly load the machine, the stack of paper should be put in the machine in a
reverse – fan. This means that the top sheet should be at the threshold of the black
wheel, and each sheet underneath should be a little further back. This will allow the
machine to pull off the top of the stack in a continuous fashion. It does not need to be
extreme. A ½” stack should be fanned out ½” from left to right (see photo).
Once the stock is placed into the machine, it will have a slight tendency to slide back
together. Do not attempt to prevent this, it should not be a factor. The paper guides
should not pinch the paper, there should be 1/32” clearance on each side.

TYPES OF FOLDS
SINGLE FOLD (HALF FOLD) STYLE
In order to do a half fold, the 2 nd folding table should be reversed (see Page 4). When
reversed, the paper bounces off of the aluminum deflector instead of entering the slot
on the opposite side.
Once the fold table is reversed the setting on it does not matter. Adjust the 1 st fold
table paper stop for proper folding. There’s a fold chart on the receiving tray with most
common settings. The settings are only approximate, some adjustment may be
necessary for the best fold quality.
NOTE: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE FOLD TABLE THUMB KNOBS.
DOUBLE FOLD (LETTER FOLD)
In order to do a double fold, the 2 nd folding table should be installed with the open end
first (See diagram on Page 4) . Adjust both the first and the second fold table
appropriately for proper fold. There’s a fold chart on the receiving tray of the machine
with most common settings. The fold table settings are only approximate. Some
readjustment may be necessary for optimum fold quality.

5.
Set first fold table for stock (8 ½” X 11”, 8 ½” X 14”, 11” X 17”) and run through
machine for proper single fold.
Readjust the feed guides of the machine so that the folded edge of the stock will
be as close to the black feed wheel as possible.
Slighly lower the red wheel to accommodate the thicker material (1/20 turn).
Readjust the fold system to accommodate the correct fold.
Run a test piece and verify proper feed.
STAPLED SETS
Stapled sets are not recommended on the unit due to damaging the folding rollers over
a period of time. However, these can be ran by stapling each set in both of the upper
corners. The staples should be parallel to the top edge of the sheet. An alternative to

this would be to lower the red wheel completely and hand feed the sets i ndividually
(unstapled).
STACKING WHEEL ADJUSTMENT
The stacking wheel length can be adjusted by sliding the wheels to the appropriate
location (see photo). They are also spring loaded and removable.
Photo 3
Photo 4
When setting the stacking wheels, set them so that exiting force of the fold rollers will
force the leading edge of the folded document under the stacking wheels. If the
document lands on the conveyors completely before starting under the stacking wheels,
it will not work correctly. An example would be; the folded document comes out of the
machine 3 2/3” wide, the stacking wheels should be around 3 ½” from the exit of the
unit. Some experimentation may be necessary. When the wheels are properly
adjusted, they will allow the document to exit the machine in a uniform manner.
MAINTENANCE
LUBRICATON
For each 20 hours of machine operation, lubricate the bushings of the machine with 1
drop of medium grade lubricant.
CLEANING
For each twenty hours of operation, clean the folding rollers of the unit with Rubber
Roller Cleaner. This is typically done with a Scotch-Brite pad and an old cotton cloth.
ROTATION OF RETARDER
From time to time the red wheel on the unit will have to be loosened and rotated to a
new side, and then firmly retightened. This is done periodically due to a flat spot
wearing on the surface of the roller.

7.
Using a flat head screw driver, remove the screw from the right side of the
feed tire hub. May require WD40 to loosen.
Remove the E-clip from the shaft on left and right side frame. Remove Eclip from the right side of the feed tire.
Slide shaft towards the non power switch side, you may feel some
resistance.
With shaft disengaged from the operators side frame at this point, slide old
feed tire off.
Slide new feed tire onto shaft, note the screw hole and make sure that it
faces the non-operators side. Slide fully up to metal clip.
Realign the feed shaft into the operator’s side frame. Replace E-clip on
left and right side to hold shaft stationary. Replace E-clip on right side of
feed tire.
Reattach spring to side of feed tire hub. Do not firmly tighten screw.
Screw head should just be in contact with spring when retightening.
TROUBLESHOOTING
JAMMING
There are several reasons that a folding machine will jam. Most commonly, this is
caused by dirty folding rollers or an incorrectly installed component. The sections on
feed table installation and fold table installation should be reviewed before cleaning the
rollers. In the event that the machine should jam, there are several tools incorporated
into its design to remove it. The solutions are listed in the realm of easiest to most
advanced.

REVERSING MOTOR TO CLEAR JAM
There is a secondary switch on the machine that allows the unit to run backwards. This
is accomplished by pressing both switches at the same time. This will usually allow a
jam to be removed by working with the paper at the same time that you reverse the
motor. There is a reference sticker beside the switch to help eliminate confusion.
MANUALLY CLEARING JAM WITH FLATHEAD SCREWDRIVER
For more severe jams, there is a slot on the operators side of the machine where the
rollers can be manually turned with a large flat head screw driver. Do not attempt to
manually rotate the rollers while the machine is turned on.
REMOVING FOLD TABLE LID TO CLEAR JAM
When paper is lodged and cannot be removed by any of the above methods, it may
require removing the lid from the upper folding table. This is done by removing the (2)
thumbknobs that hold the lid in place, and pulling it away from the machine. This will
provide increased access to the rollers, and easier access to the paper. NOTE: When
reinstalling the knobs, do not over tighten.
