6.0 Operation
6.2 Backgauge Control
The backgauge is used to position paper to the desired location when cutting. The backgauge is
operated by the hand crank at the front of the machine. The backgauge position is shown by a
lighted LED display. When the machine is first powered up, the display shows four lines as follows,
indicating the display needs to be reset.
Figure 5 – Display at power up
To reset the display, bring the backgauge to the forward most position. If the backgauge is already at
the forward most position, move the backgauge back by a few turns, then bring it forward again. Now
the display should show the actual position of the backgauge (Figure 6). If the machine is left on all
of the time, this should be done at least once per day. The position of the decimal point indicates
whether the reading is in inches or millimeters. Two digits to the right of decimal indicates inches,
one digit to the right of decimal indicates millimeters. To switch from inches to mm and vice-versa,
press the inch/mm button located next to the display.

6.0 Operation
6.3 Jogging Aid
Always remove the jogging aid from the table before making a cut.
A jogging aid is included as standard equipment with the Spartan 150. This tool allows the operator
to load and align paper without the need to place hands or arms under the knife or clamp.
To use, load the paper against the side and backgauge using the jogging aid (Figure 7 & Figure 8).
Remove the jogging aid from the table, close the shield, clamp the paper, and make the cut.
Figure 7
Figure 8
12
6.0 Operation
6.4 Line Light
The Spartan 150 comes standard with an LED line light. The line light switches on and stays on
whenever the power is on. To use, simply align paper under clamp, and use the red light line as an
indicator of where the cut will be made (Figure 9).
Figure 9 – Line Light
6.5 Making a Cut
Open the front shield and set the backgauge to the desired position. Place the paper square against
the backgauge and either side guide. Clamp down on the paper using the clamp hand-wheel located
on top of the machine. Close the front shield. Move the red-capped knife latch lever and pull the
cutting lever to the left. Once the cutting lever has moved slightly, the knife latch lever may be
released. Two hands may then be used to complete the cut. Firmly seat the knife into the plastic
cutting stick to assure all sheets are completely cut. If all sheets are not completely cut see 6.6
Adjusting the Knife Depth to adjust the cutting depth. Move the cutting lever to its original position
and raise the hood. The hood will not open unless cutting lever is at its right-most position.
Raise the clamp by turning the hand-wheel and remove the cut pieces of paper.
13
6.0 Operation
6.6 Adjusting the Knife Depth
The depth of cut can be adjusted using the knife depth adjusting screw located on the left side of the
machine. The same T-handled wrench used for changing the knife can be used to adjust the screw.
Turn the screw counter-clockwise to increase knife depth, and clockwise to decrease knife depth. It
is better to make several slight adjustments and perform test cuts in between, than to make large
adjustments and cut too deep. Try to avoid setting the knife too deep because this can cause
premature wear on knife and/or damage the cut stick.
Knife Adjusting
Screw
Figure 10 – Knife Depth Adjustment
6.7 Operating Tips
Carefully lay out each sheet before you start cutting. Find the best cut pattern to give you the most
pieces out of the sheet. If the sheet will be folded, be sure grain of the paper is running in the same
direction as the fold or you will get a rough edge on the fold.
If an accurate cut is necessary for close register work, you MUST have a sharp blade in the cutter. A
dull blade will pull or draw the paper and cause uneven cutting. Increased clamp pressure will not
eliminate draw caused by a dull knife.
The correct clamping pressure varies from paper to paper. The general rule is that you should have
enough pressure to hold the paper securely but not so much that it marks the surface of the paper
excessively. Excessive pressure causes pile distortion and inaccurate cuts.
Mark the gripper edge and the guide edge of printed paper and make sure the first cuts are with these
guide edges against the backgauge.
When cutting business cards or narrow strips of paper, place lifts of equal height on opposite sides of
the table to provide better clamping.

The knife changing equipment shown in Figure 11 is included with the machine. The following
instructions show how to remove and install a new or re-sharpened knife. Read these instructions AT
LEAST ONCE before attempting to actually change or install any blades.
7.1 Knife Removal
Knives are always very sharp! Be sure to keep the edge away from your
body and keep other people out of the area while handling the blade. Severe lacerations or
dismemberment could result from careless handling procedures.
1. Lower the clamp to the table and remove the clamp handle and cutting lever handle.
2. Remove the top cover.
15
7.0 Knife Installation/Changing
3. With the knife at its extreme up position, lift the hood.
4. Remove the two knife bolts that are mounted in open slots in the knife bar.
5. Install the knife lifter onto the knife holder. Screw the handles into the holes from which the
two, knife bolts were removed. Firmly tighten each handle.
6. Remove the remaining knife bolts.
7. Place an empty knife scabbard on a nearby flat surface.
8. Slowly loosen the handles until the knife can be freed from the knife bar. Move the knife to
the right or left and remove it from the machine at an angle.
9. Place the knife on the scabbard and remove the knife lifter. Carefully slide the knife to line up
holes in the knife with holes in the scabbard. Secure the knife to the scabbard using the
scabbard screws.
10. Send dull knives to a knife grinder – do not attempt to sharpen your own knives! Knives that
do not have a minimum height of 1-1/2” (3.8 cm) will not function properly and should be
carefully discarded. See the Knife Care Tips Section below for additional information.
7.2 Knife Installation
Knives are always very sharp! Be sure to keep the edge away from your
body and keep other people out of the area while handling the blade. Severe lacerations or
dismemberment could result from careless handling procedures.
1. If a knife is currently installed or the top cover is installed, see the previous section for
instructions on knife removal. The clamp should be lowered to the table. The clamp handle
and top cover should be removed from the machine.
2. Raise the hood. Pull out the cut stick and turn it to a new surface or replace with a new one.
3. Remove the retainer screws from the new blade and screw the knife lifters into the new
blade. Screw the lifters about half way into the knife.
4. Insert the knife assembly into position under the knife bar. Raise the knife into the knife bar
slot as high as it will go. Check all view holes to make sure knife is all the way up. Tighten
the lifters.
NOTE: If the blade will not go in, make sure the lifters are not screwed into the blade too far.
5. Insert and tighten (4) knife bolts into the knife.
6. Loosen the knife lifter handles and remove the knife lifter.
7. Insert and tighten the remaining (2) knife bolts.
8. Reinstall the top cover, clamp handle, and lever-arm handle.
9. Adjust depth of cut by placing sheets of paper across the entire width of the cutting area.
Clamp the paper and make a cut. Adjust the knife depth adjustment screw just until the
16
7.0 Knife Installation/Changing
entire width of paper is cut completely through. Do not allow the knife to cut too deep into the
cut stick. Cutting excessively deep into the stick will reduce its life.
10. Send dull knives to a knife grinder – do not attempt to sharpen your own knives! Knives that
do not have a minimum height of 1-1/2” (3.8 cm) will not function properly and should be
carefully discarded. See the Knife Care Tips Section below for additional information.
7.3 Knife Care Tips
! KNIFE SAFETY ! Knives are DANGEROUS!!! Knives are very sharp,
even after use. Keep the edge away from your body and keep the area clear of others when handling
knives. Never touch the cutting edge! To prevent personal injury and damage to the knife, always
keep knives in their holders with screws tightened. Even if you are aware of the dangers, others may
not be. Never attempt to hone, polish, or service the knife in any way. Failure to follow safety
procedures may result in severe lacerations or dismemberment.
7.3.1 Knife Blade Life
Knife blade life, or the time between sharpening, can be affected by many factors. One important
factor is the type of paper being cut. Abrasive paper, such as recycled paper, soft paper such as
newsprint and bound books can all significantly shorten knife blade life. In addition, if the knife depth
is set too deep, the knife will cut too deep into the cutting stick and can quickly dull the knife blade.
A knife can last between 2,000 and 5,000 cuts before it needs to be sharpened. Cutting soft paper
(such as newsprint paper) or paper with high post-consumer recycled content can cause the knife to
need sharpening after only 2,000 to 3,000 cuts. Cutting pure paper, such as bond paper with no
recycled content or hard paper can allow the knife to be used for as many as 5,000 cuts before it
needs to be sharpened. In all cases, the operator should continually check the quality of the cut to
determine when the knife blade needs to be sharpened. Some characteristics that indicate a blade
needs sharpening are:
•
The cut requires too much effort.
•
The sheets are not all cut to the same length (usually the top few sheets are longer than the
rest of the sheets - this is sometimes called “draw”).
•
Cut marks or scoring appears on the cut face of the paper.
•
The profile of the cut (side view) is not perpendicular to the table.
•
The cut does not appear straight when viewed from the top.
•
The knife makes a “rough” sound as it passes through paper.
•
Nicks are visible on the cutting edge of the knife.
7.3.2 Cutting Stick
A worn cutting stick can affect the cut quality of the bottom sheets. When this happens, the cut stick
can be rotated. Usually, the stick should be rotated one or two times between knife sharpening. Cut
sticks have a “wavy” shape to them and when rotated must be rotated a full 180° to keep a flat side
up. Each stick has 2 flat sides that can be used, after which it can be turned end to end, allowing the
2 flat sides to be used again, for a total of 4 positions per cut stick.
17
7.0 Knife Installation/Changing
7.3.3 Bevel Angle
Challenge recommends that the bevel angle for the Spartan 150 knives be 20°. Order a reO
sharpened knife to the following specification, “20 , DEAD SHARP, NO MICRO-BEVEL.” A microbevel on this knife will cause strenuous cutting. If an operator requires cutting with less physical
o
o
strain, knives may be re-sharpened to 18 . Note, however, that a knife sharpened at 18 has a
shorter lifetime and is more susceptible to damage.
7.3.4 Helpful Suggestions
•
It may be helpful to own a “set” of knives. A set consists of 3 knives: one in the machine,
one as back up, and one at the grinder.
•
If the machine seems to strain but the cut quality is still good, reduce the pile height. You
may also carefully apply glycerin to the bevel when cutting hard, coated paper. Tie a cloth to
the end of a stick; dip the stick in glycerin, and apply. Never apply by hand! In lieu of
glycerin, you may lightly rub white bar soap along the bevel. Lubrication will prolong the life
of your machine and reduce maintenance.
7.3.5 Knife Care
18
•
To prevent corrosion, new knives are coated with light oil. It should be REMOVED WITH
CARE.
•
While removing or installing a knife, be careful not to allow the edge to bump against the
machine. Nicks will result.
•
If a knife bolt is damaged, replace it.
•
Always keep knife bolts securely tightened.
•
Store knives in a dry environment to prevent corrosion.
•
Never attempt to service a knife in any way.
