NOTICE
This symbol is used to alert the user to useful information about proper
operation of the equipment, and/or a situation that may cause damage
to the machinery.
Standard Safety Instructions
1. READ THROUGH THE ENTIRE MANUAL BEFORE STARTING MACHINERY. Machinery presents serious
injury hazards to untrained users.
2. ALWAYS USE ANSI APPROVED SAFETY GLASSES WHEN OPERATING MACHINERY. Everyday eyeglasses only have impact resistant lenses—they are NOT safety glasses.
3. ALWAYS WEAR AN NIOSH APPROVED RESPIRATOR WHEN OPERATING MACHINERY THAT PRODUCES
DUST. Wood dust is a carcinogen and can cause cancer and severe respiratory illnesses.
4. ALWAYS USE HEARING PROTECTION WHEN OPERATING MACHINERY. Machinery noise can cause
permanent hearing damage.
5. WEAR PROPER APPAREL. DO NOT wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties, rings, or jewelry which may
get caught in moving parts. Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair and wear non-slip
footwear.
6. NEVER OPERATE MACHINERY WHEN TIRED, OR UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS OR ALCOHOL.
Be mentally alert at all times when running machinery.
7. Only allow trained and properly supervised personnel to operate machinery. Make
sure operation instructions are safe and clearly understood.
8. KEEP CHILDREN AND VISITORS AWAY. Keep all children and visitors a safe distance from the work
area.
9. MAKE WORKSHOP CHILD PROOF. Use padlocks, master switches, and remove start switch keys.
-6-
W1764 Power Feeder
10. NEVER LEAVE WHEN MACHINE IS RUNNING. Turn power off and allow all moving parts to come to
a complete stop before leaving machine unattended.
11. DO NOT USE IN DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENTS. DO NOT use machinery in damp, wet locations, or
where any flammable or noxious fumes may exist.
13. USE A GROUNDED EXTENSION CORD RATED FOR THE MACHINE AMPERAGE. Undersized cords overheat and lose power. Replace extension cords if they become damaged. DO NOT use extension cords
for 220V machinery.
14. ALWAYS DISCONNECT FROM POWER SOURCE BEFORE SERVICING MACHINERY. Make sure switch is
in OFF position before reconnecting.
15. MAINTAIN MACHINERY WITH CARE. Keep blades sharp and clean for best and safest performance.

SAFETY
Additional Safety for Power Feeders
READ and understand this
entire instruction manual
before using this machine.
Serious personal injury
may occur if safety and
operational information is
not understood and followed. DO NOT risk your
safety by not reading!
Use this and other machinery with caution
and respect. Always consider safety first,
as it applies to your individual working
conditions. No list of safety guidelines can
be complete—every shop environment is
different. Failure to follow guidelines could

W1764 Power Feeder
Machine Placement
Table Load: This power feed distributes
a heavy load in a small footprint. Some
machine table tops may require additional
bracing or clamps for correct support.
•
Working Clearances: Consider existing and
anticipated needs, size of material to be
processed through the machine, and space
for auxiliary stands, work tables or other
machinery when establishing a location for
your power feed.
•
Lighting: Lighting should be bright enough
to eliminate shadow and prevent eye strain.
•
Electrical: Electrical circuits must be
dedicated or large enough to handle
amperage requirements. Outlets must be
located near each machine, so power or
extension cords are clear of high-traffic
areas. Follow local electrical codes for
proper installation of new lighting, outlets,
or circuits.
Some unpainted parts of your power feed may
be coated with oil or a waxy grease that protects them from corrosion during shipment.
Clean this oil or grease off with a solvent cleaner or citrus-based degreaser. DO NOT use chlorine-based solvents such as brake parts cleaner
or acetone—if you happen to splash some onto a
painted surface, you will ruin the finish.
NEVER use gasoline or
other petroleum-based
solvents to clean with.
Most have low flash
points, which make them
extremely
flammable.
A risk of explosion and
burning exists if these
products are used. Serious
personal injury may occur
if this warning is ignored!
MAKE your shop is “child
safe.” Ensure that your
workplace is inaccessible
to youngsters by closing
and locking all entrances
when you are away. NEVER
allow untrained visitors in
your shop when assembling, adjusting or operating equipment.
ALWAYS work in wellventilated areas far from
possible ignition sources
when using solvents to
clean machinery. Many
solvents are toxic when
inhaled or ingested. Use
care when disposing
of waste rags and
towels to be sure they
DO NOT create fire or
environmental hazards.

Assembly
To correctly position this power feeder on your table top,
completely assemble the power feeder first, then refer to
Base Mounting on Page 15. The reason for this order, is
that with the power feeder unit completely assembled, it
will be easier to locate where on the table top you will
need to drill your base mounting holes, so you can take
advantage of the full range of power feeder swing and
adjustments.
To assemble the power feeder, do these steps:
1. Oil the T-handle threads and position the elbow
clamp assembly onto the feeder base as shown in
Figure 5.
SETUP
2. Thread the T-handle into the feeder base until the
elbow is snug.
3. Insert the arm into the ball-joint ball and secure
both together with the M10-1.5 x 25mm cap screw

Base Mounting
To correctly position this power feeder on your table top,
completely assemble the power feeder first, then refer
this section and mount your base to the table using one
of the three methods below. The reason for this order, is
that with the power feeder unit completely assembled, it
will be easier to locate where on the table top you will
need to drill your base mounting holes, so you can take
advantage of the full range of power feeder swing and
adjustments.

Direct Mount Option
You may choose to use the included mounting template
and drill and tap your table, so the power feeder base
can be directly mounted to the table surface (Figure 15).
But make sure that the machine cast-iron table is no less
than 3⁄8" thick where the threaded holes are drilled and
tapped. If the table is any thinner, you run the risk of
having shallow and weak threads that will allow the bolts
to loosen as the power feeder is used. Thread locking
compound will not cure this problem. Do not drill and tap
into any table support webs or table supports to compensate for a thin table, or you will weaken the table and
possibly cause cracking. Revert to either the ThroughBolt Option or the Quick Holder Kit Option if the table is
too thin or if support webbing is in the way. In any case,
make sure to use an automotive-grade liquid thread locking compound on all threads.

and install the Model D3868 Quick Holder Kit (Figure 16).
These kits, while not as rigid as the through-bolt or direct
mount options, require no drilling or tapping, and are
adequate for most power feeder applications. Make sure
to use an automotive-grade liquid thread locking compound on all threads.

SETUP
We recommend that you mount your new power feeder
to the machine table with through bolts, nuts and washers (Figure 14). This option will give the most rigidity and
clamping strength to prevent the feeder base from twisting out of alignment during use. However, if the included
mounting bolt template shows that any under-table support webs will interfere with any washer or nut locations
under the table, you will have to use an optional clamping
kit, or drill and thread holes directly into the table as
described in the Direct Mount Option paragraph below.

OPERATIONS
General
This machine will perform many types of operations
that are beyond the scope of this manual. Many of these
operations can be dangerous or deadly if performed incorrectly.
The instructions in this section are written with the understanding that the operator has the necessary knowledge
and skills to operate this machine. If at any time you
experience difficulties performing any operation, stop
using the machine!
If you are an inexperienced operator, we strongly recommend that you read books, trade articles, or seek training
from an experienced power feeder operator before performing any unfamiliar operations. Above all, your safety
should come first!
READ and understand this entire instruction manual before using this machine.
Serious personal injury may occur if
safety and operational information is not
understood and followed. DO NOT risk
your safety by not reading!
Levers
Alignment
To use the power feeder properly, the three wheels must
be parallel with the table surface and 1⁄8" lower than the
thickness of your workpiece. The power feeder must also
point towards the machine fence slightly. In other words
the tracking of the power feeder must be toed-in approximately 1° to 1.5° degrees towards the machine fence, so
the power feeder wheels push the workpiece against the
fence slightly during cutting operations.
DO NOT investigate problems or adjust
the machine while it is running. Wait
until the machine is turned OFF,
unplugged and all working parts
have come to a complete stop before
proceeding!
Dust Port
For machine operations that generate a lot of dust, this
power feeder is equipped with a dust port. Simply remove
the plastic knock-out plug at the bottom of the port and
connect a 13⁄8" inside diameter Shop Vac hose.
Always wear safety glasses when operating this machine. Failure to comply
may result in serious personal injury.
-17-
OPERATIONS
The levers on this power feeder allow you to adjust the
power feeder tracking and height to accommodate many
workpiece styles. When adjusting the power feeder,
always support the power feeder with a block of wood
so when a lever is loosened the feeder does not drop and
damage the table or feeder.
W1764 Power Feeder
MAINTENANCE
General
Regular periodic maintenance on your machine will
ensure its optimum performance. Make a habit of
inspecting your machine each time you use it.
Check for the following conditions and repair or
replace when necessary:
•
•
•
•
•
Loose mounting bolts.
Worn switch.
Worn or damaged cords and plugs.
Damaged wheel rubber.
Any other condition that could hamper the safe
operation of this machine.
Cleaning
MAINTENANCE
Frequently blow-off sawdust with compressed air. This is
especially important for the internal working parts and
motor. Dust build-up around the motor is a sure way to
decrease its life span. If the wheels become loaded up
with pitch, oil, or other residues, wipe them clean using
a clean rag and a mild solvent. Avoid touching the plastic
or paint with mineral spirits or you may damage the surfaces.
Lubrication
Since all bearings are sealed and permanently lubricated,
simply leave them alone until they need to be replaced.
