EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION
The EICC is an accessory kit to the Low Clearance Split
Frame (LCSF) machine used to cut off and chamfer production pipe below a wellhead. The EICC internal attachment
mounts on the LCSF with a bridge adapter. A graduated
drive tube secured in the bridge adapter allows for precise
positioning of the cutting tools mounted on the rotating
chuck head. Three clamp legs clamp and secure the drive
tube inside the casing.
Custom wellhead adapters are available as an option for the
EICC. The custom wellhead adapters provide a more solid
base upon which to make precise cuts.

LCSF
TOOL SLIDE TENSION
ADJUSTMENTS
Lubricate the LCSF according to the guidelines in the
LCSF manual.
ADJUSTING THE COUNTER
Slides
Clean and grease the threads on the tool block and slide
block each time you use the machine. Apply lubricant to
the starwheel feed screw as well. Lubricate using way oil.
TOOL SLIDE TENSION ADJUSTMENTS
The tool slide starwheel tension can be increased or
decreased as desired by tightening and loosening the gib
screws.
Tool slide tension is critical for correct operation. The slide
should be as loose as possible while still having enough gib
pressure to remove all play from the male tool slide. Check
the tension each time you use the EICC, and adjust if necessary.
1. Remove the tool slide from the EICC by loosening
the tool slide mounting screws.

2. Turn all gib screws counterclockwise to loosen them
completely, but do not remove the gib screws.
Gib Screws
Figure 4-1. Loosen the gib screws shown to adjust the
slide tension.
3. Gently turn the top screw on the left gib clockwise to
tighten it.
4. Gently tighten the top screw on the right gib.
5. Tighten all gib screws evenly until the male tool slide
cannot wobble.
6. Test the tool slide tension. The slide should be as loose
as possible while still having enough gib pressure to
remove all play from the male tool slide.
7. Repeat steps 2-5 if necessary.
ADJUSTING THE COUNTER
The edge of the counter wheel should be 0.540” (13.7 mm)
from the edge of the counter housing to ensure the counter
marks each revolution of the EICC. Refer to the exploded
view drawing in Chapter 5. If the counter is not properly
functioning, the counter wheel must be adjusted.
50
Part No. 60-MAN-05, Rev. A
E.H. Wachs
Introduction to the Equipment: Adjusting the Counter
1. Measure the distance between the edge of the counter
wheel and the counter housing.
Figure 4-2. Measure the counter wheel distance from
the counter base.
2. Turn the counter wheel until one of the hex screws is
visible through the counter wheel notch.
NOTE
Loosen only
one of the hex screws on
the counter wheel. Loosening both set screws will
misalign the counter.
Figure 4-3. The hex screw is accessible through the
counter wheel notch.
3. Loosen the hex screw with a 5/64” hex wrench.

wheel is floating.
4. Adjust the counter wheel to the needed depth.
Figure 4-5. Use a scale to accurately adjust the
counter wheel.
5. Securely tighten the counter wheel screw.
6. Test the counter to make sure it counts properly.
Readjust as needed. It may be necessary to adjust the
counter depth to more or less than 0.540” (13.7 mm).
7. Mount the counter on the LCSF stationary ring.
8. Operate the EICC for one rotation to test the counter.
