power).
When the 3-phase power is properly connected, the tool
must be checked for proper rotational direction by completing the following steps:
d. Turn the main power switch “ON,” and depress the
safety foot switch. If the lower roll still does not
rotate clockwise, contact the Victaulic Tool Company.
PRE-OPERATION
ADJUSTMENTS
Every VE414MC is checked, adjusted, and tested at the
factory before shipment. Before grooving, however, the
following adjustments must be made to ensure the tool is
operating properly.
1. Turn the main power switch "ON."
• Always turn the main power switch OFF before making any tool adjustments,
unless instructed otherwise.
Accidental startup of the tool could result in serious personal injury.
Grooving Rolls
NOTICE
• In late 1993, Victaulic introduced an improved type of grooving roll called
"Enhanced Tracking Rolls" (ETR). The patented ETRs allow hands-free grooving for
short pipe lengths. The photo below shows the difference between the ETR and the
previous type of roll. The ETRs have two narrow grooves in the knurled surfaces,
and the older rolls do not. It is important that you identify the type of grooving rolls
you have available.
2. Position the toggle switch to "NORMAL." This switch
is located on the left-hand side of the enclosure.
3. Move the depth adjuster lock to the full down position.
Depress the safety foot switch, and observe the direction
of the lower roll’s rotation. Release the foot switch.
You may have the ETRs if you:
• Purchased or rented a Victaulic roll grooving tool after December 1993
• Purchased replacement grooving rolls after December 1993
If the lower roll is rotating clockwise, proceed to the "Pipe
Preparation" section, on the following page.
If the lower roll is rotating counterclockwise, turn the
main power switch OFF, and proceed as follows:
Make sure the proper roll set is on the tool for the pipe size
and material being grooved. These roll sets are marked
with the pipe size range and part number. Refer to the
“Tool Rating and Roll Selection” section starting on
page 31. If proper rolls are not on the tool, refer to the “Roll
Changing” section on page 18.
6
for instructions on how to groove short pipe lengths. For
pipe longer than shown in Table 1, refer to the “Long Pipe
Lengths” section on page 8.
• Make sure the roll retaining bolts are tight.
Loose retaining bolts could cause damage to the tool and rolls.
NOTICE
Pipe Preparation
• Grooved pipe nipples, shorter than those listed in the following table, are
available from Victaulic.
For proper tool operation and to provide pipe grooves that
are within Victaulic specifications, the following guidelines must be followed.
TABLE 1 – GROOVABLE PIPE LENGTHS
Pipe Size
1. Square cut the pipe ends in accordance with the Column 1 note in the appropriate “Roll Groove Specifications” chart starting on page 33.
2. Internal or external weld beads or seams must be
ground flush with the pipe surface, extending approximately 2" (50 mm) back from the pipe end.
3. The end of the pipe, both inside and outside, must be
cleaned of loose rust, coarse scale, dirt, and other foreign
material.
• For maximum grooving roll life, remove foreign material and loose rust from the
inside and outside of pipe ends. Rust is an abrasive material that will wear the
surface of grooving rolls.
Foreign material may interfere with or damage grooving rolls, resulting in distorted
grooves and grooves that are out of Victaulic specifications.

^16" (406 mm) long for aluminum, PVC, and light-wall steel and stainless steel
NOTE: Always use a pipe stand for Schedule 30 and standard wall steel and stainless
steel.
If a pipe, shorter than the minimum length listed in the
above table, is required, shorten the next-to-last piece
enough so that the last piece is as long (or longer) than
the minimum length specified. Refer to the example
below.
Pipe lengths, longer than those listed in Table 1 on this
page (and up to 20 ft/6 m), must be supported with a pipe
stand.
Pipe lengths from 20 ft (6 m) up to double-random lengths
(approximately 40 ft/12 m) must be supported with two
pipe stands.
EXAMPLE: You need a 20-foot, 4-inch (6,2 m) length of
10-inch (273,0-mm) diameter pipe to finish a section, but
you have only 20-foot (6,1 m) lengths available Instead of
roll grooving a 20-foot (6,1-m) piece of pipe and a 4-inch
(0,1-m) pipe of pipe, follow these steps:

RAM SPEED ADJUSTMENT
NOTICE
NOTE: Both the VE414 and the VE414MC use the same
upper and lower grooving roll sets, as well as other features. Because of similarities between the VE414MC and
the VE414 models, some of the photos in this section
show the VE414 model. Therefore, some of these photos
may look different from your model.
• Figure 3 shows the Victaulic adjustable pipe stand (VAPS 112). The VAPS 112 is
suitable for ³⁄₄ - 12" (26,9 – 323,9 mm) pipe. The Victaulic model VAPS 224 is
suitable for 2 – 24" (60,3 – 610,0 mm) pipe sizes. Refer to the “Accessories”
section on page 29.
• For additional information about pipe stands, refer to the instructions included
with the stand.
The ram speed adjustment is factory set for roll grooving
steel pipe. If the pipe being grooved is another material,
the ram speed must be re-adjusted.
Important Information
Make sure the tool is level. Refer to the "Tool Setup" section for leveling and anchoring requirements.
When pipe-end flare is excessive, right-to-left tracking
must be kept to a minimum. It may be necessary to use
less than ¹⁄₂ a degree for the tracking angle.
Installation of couplings on pipe that exceeds the maximum allowable flare (listed in the “Roll Groove Specifications” chart starting on page 33) may prevent pad-to-pad
closure of the housings and/or may cause damage to the
coupling gasket.
If the back end of the pipe is higher than the end being
grooved, the pipe may not track, and excessive pipe-end
flare may result.
1. Open the top enclosure.
• Pipe position will affect pipe flare.
• Make sure the tool is level.
Failure to follow these instructions could result in property damage, gasket distortion/damage, joint leakage, and/or joint failure.

ROLL GUARD ADJUSTMENT
NOTE: Both the VE414 and the VE414MC use the same
upper and lower grooving roll sets, as well as other features. Because of similarities between the VE414MC and
the VE414 models, some of the photos in this section
show the VE414 model. Therefore, some of these photos
may look different from your model.
The VE414MC guards must be adjusted every time the
rolls are changed, or when the pipe size or wall thickness
is different from the pipe that was previously grooved.
3. Insert the key into the ram speed control valve, as
shown. Turn to unlock.
1. Make sure the proper roll set is on the tool for the pipe
size and material. Rolls are marked with the pipe size,
part number, and they are color coded for the pipe material (refer to the “Tool Rating and Roll Selection” section
starting on page 31). If the proper rolls are not on the tool,
refer to the “Roll Changing” section on page 18.

NOTICE
• The ram speed control valve affects only the rate at which the upper roll forms the
groove. It does not affect the rate at which the upper roll advances to contact the
pipe, nor does it affect the rate at which the roll retracts at the completion of the
groove.
• Ram speed during the formation of the groove can have a significant effect on
pipe-end flare. The recommended setting, listed in the table above, will produce
excellent grooves in most situations. However, if excessive flare results at these
settings, reduce the settings to correct the condition. For example, adjust the
setting to 1.8 on steel when flare is excessive at the 2.0 setting.
2. Loosen the wing nuts, and move the adjustable guards
to the full-up position. Tighten the wing nuts.

3. Insert a piece of pipe of the correct size and schedule/
thickness (refer to the “Pipe Preparation” section starting
on page 7) over the lower roll. Make sure the pipe end
contacts the lower roll’s backstop flange.
The VE414MC pipe stabilizer is designed to prevent sway
of 6 – 16" (168,3 – 406,4 mm) IPS pipe sizes; this applies to
short and long pipe sizes. Once the stabilizer is adjusted
for a selected pipe size and wall thickness, it does not
require further adjustment. Pipe of the same size and
thickness may be moved in and out of the tool without
retracting the stabilizer.
4. Set the main power switch to the "ON" position.
1. Make sure the proper roll set is on the tool for the pipe
size and material. Rolls are marked with the pipe size
range, part number, and they are color coded for the pipe

4a. Set the toggle switch to the "JOG" position.
7. Prepare to support the pipe, and set the toggle switch
to the "NORMAL" position. The arm/upper roll assembly
will return to its upper position, and the pipe will release.
• Use the "JOG" setting only for pre-operation adjustments to the tool. When the tool
is left in the "JOG" setting with the power on, the pipe will be gradually released.
This may result in the pipe falling out of the tool.
• Always return the switch to the "NORMAL" setting at the completion of the preoperation adjustments.
Failure to follow these instructions could result in personal injury, product damage,
and/or property damage.
8. Complete the "Pre-Operation Adjustment" section, and
groove the pipe (refer to the “Grooving Operation” section
starting on page 15).
The stabilizer roller should remain in light or intermittent
contact with the pipe, and the pipe should rotate
smoothly without swaying from side-to-side. If not,
advance the stabilizer roller inward. Re-test and make further adjustments, as necessary. DO NOT adjust the stabilizer too far inward, since it will skew the pipe to the left
and possibly result in excessive pipe-end flare.
5. The operator must be positioned on the switch side of
the machine. Use the safety foot switch to energize the
tool’s motor and to bring the upper roll down into firm
contact with the pipe. Withdraw your foot from the safety
foot switch.
6. Using the handwheel, advance the stabilizer roller
inward to the position indicated in Figure 5 on page 12.
Tighten the locking handle.
• DO NOT adjust the stabilizer to push the pipe to the left and off-center from the
rolls. Doing so will cause increased pipe-end flare and will shorten roller life.
Failure to follow this instruction could cause increased pipe-end flare and shorten
roller life, resulting in property damage, joint leakage, excessive gasket distortion/
damage, and/or joint separation.
13
DWELL CONTROL ADJUSTMENT
The dwell control adjustment controls the length of time
the tool continues to rotate the pipe once the groove
diameter stop contacts the top of the hydraulic cylinder.
When adjusted to the proper size, the pipe will rotate a
minimum of one revolution after the groove diameter stop
contacts the hydraulic cylinder. This ensures that the
groove in the pipe will be of uniform depth around the
entire pipe circumference.
2. Locate the proper size and schedule on the pipe size
indicator above the hydraulic power cylinder.
1. Adjust the dial marked "PIPE SIZE" to the pipe size
range being grooved.
NOTICE
• During grooving, the groove diameter stop may occasionally ride up and down,
making contact and then breaking contact with the hydraulic cylinder. This is
normal for pipe that has a pronounced weld seam or hard spot.
3. Back off the depth adjuster lock. Align the depth
adjuster with the proper size and schedule, as shown.
Lock the depth adjuster in position with the depth
adjuster lock.
GROOVE DIAMETER STOP
ADJUSTMENT
NOTICE
• The markings on the depth adjuster provide an approximate groove diameter
adjustment and are not exact groove diameter settings. Variations in actual pipe
outside diameters and wall thicknesses prevent the diameter stop from being
calibrated to an exact setting.
NOTE: Both the VE414 and the VE414MC use the same
upper and lower grooving roll sets, as well as other features. Because of similarities between the VE414MC and
the VE414 models, some of the photos in this section
show the VE414 model. Therefore, some of these photos
may look different from your model.
The groove diameter stop must be adjusted for each pipe
size or change in wall thickness. The groove diameter,
identified as the "C" dimension for each pipe size, is listed

Replacement of
Hydraulic Oil and Filter
Grease
Fitting
1. Replace the hydraulic oil and oil filter once per year or
every 2000 hours of operation, whichever comes first.
2. Open the tool’s rear door.
Bleeder
Fitting
1. The gear reducer’s input shaft cover contains a grease
fitting (shown above). This grease fitting is located on the
chain coupling side of the gear reducer. A bleeder fitting
is located on the center of the gear reducer’s input shaft
cover (shown above).
3. Remove the hydraulic breather cap/dipstick on top of
the hydraulic tank.
2. Lubricate the input shaft bearing after every 40 hours
of operation. This fitting must be lubricated with a No.
2EP Lithium-base grease until it weeps from the bleeder
fitting.
Hydraulic Oil Level
1. Using the dipstick, check the hydraulic oil level at least
once per month. The level should be approximately ³⁄₄ - 1"
(20 – 25 mm) below the oil tank’s threaded neck. DO NOT
over-fill the tank, since the oil may overflow due to thermal expansion. Refer to the “Recommended Lubricants”
section on page 29 for the proper hydraulic oil.
4. Position a container, large enough to hold 1¹⁄₂ gallons
(6 liters) of oil, underneath the oil tank’s drain plug.
Remove the drain plug, located on the underside of the
hydraulic oil tank. Allow the oil to drain completely into
the 1¹⁄₂-gallon (6-liters) or larger container.
25
Hydraulic Fluid Bleeding
5. Replace the drain plug.
1. Fill the hydraulic tank with a recommended hydraulic
oil (refer to page 26) to approximately ³⁄₄ - 1" (20 – 25 mm)
below the threaded neck of the tank.
2. Remove the plug from the tee fitting near the hydraulic
cylinder.
6. Place a tray under the oil filter, and remove the filter.
3. Install the bleeder tube (supplied with the tool) handtight into the tee fitting.
7. Lubricate the new filter gasket with new hydraulic oil.
Install the new filter hand-tight.
8. Fill the tank with new hydraulic oil to approximately ³⁄₄
- 1" (20 – 25 mm) from the threaded neck of the tank.
9. Re-install the hydraulic breather cap/dipstick.
26
7. Set the main power switch to the “ON” position.
4. Remove the hydraulic breather cap/dipstick.
8. Set the toggle switch to the “JOG” position.
9. Depress the safety foot switch. The fluid will start to
flow through the bleeder tube (the fluid should contain air
bubbles).
9a. Continue to run the fluid through the bleeder tube for
at least five minutes. While doing this, lightly tap on all of
the steel hydraulic tubes to free any trapped air inside the
walls.
9b. Once the fluid flows through the bleeder tube without
any air bubbles, continue to run it through for another two
to three minutes. After this is complete, release the safety
foot switch.
5. Insert the end of the bleeder tube (clear hose) into the
tank so that the end is submerged in the hydraulic fluid.
10. Remove the bleeder tube from the tee fitting and tank.
Install the plug back into the tee fitting. Make sure air is
not allowed back into the tee fitting while doing this.
6. Connect the tool to the proper power supply.
11. Fill the tank with new hydraulic oil approximately ³⁄₄ 1" (20 – 25 mm) from the threaded neck of the tank.
27
12. Set the depth stop on the tool to obtain approximately
a ¹⁄₄-inch (5-mm) gap between the depth stop and the cylinder.
16. Set the power switch to the “OFF” position.
13. Set the toggle switch to the “NORMAL” position.
14. Depress the foot switch, and observe the hydraulic
ram’s motion. The hydraulic ram should move down
approximately ¹⁄₄-inch (5-mm) rapidly. Release the foot
switch. The hydraulic ram should return to its full-up position. Repeat this step several times.
15. If the slide does not move rapidly in the downward
direction, repeat steps 2 – 14.

COLUMN 1: IPS Outside Diameter – The outside diameter of roll-grooved pipe cannot vary more than the tolerance listed. For IPS pipe, the maximum allowable tolerance from square-cut ends is 0.030" (0,8 mm) for ³⁄₄
- 3¹⁄₂" (26,9 – 101,6 mm) pipe; 0.045" (1,1 mm) for 4 – 6" (114,3 – 168,3 mm) pipe; and 0.060" (1,5 mm) for sizes 8" OD and above. This is measured from the true square line.
COLUMN 2: Gasket Seat – The pipe surface must be free from indentations, roll marks, and projections, from the pipe end to the groove, to provide a leak-tight seal for the gasket. All loose paint, scale, dirt, chips, grease,
and rust must be removed. Victaulic recommends that the pipe be square cut. When using beveled-end pipe, contact Victaulic for details. Square-cut pipe must be used with FlushSeal ® and EndSeal® gaskets. The gasket seat
"A" is measured from the end of the pipe. IMPORTANT: Roll grooving of beveled-end pipe may result in unacceptable pipe-end flare. Refer to column 8.
COLUMN 3: Groove Width – The bottom of the groove must be free of loose dirt, chips, and scale that may interfere with proper coupling assembly. The corners at the bottom of the groove must have a radius of the following
dimensions. For IPS steel pipe, .06R on ³⁄₄- 1¹⁄₂" (26,9 – 48,3 mm) pipe; .08R on 2 – 6" (60,3 – 168,3 mm) pipe; .05R on 8" (219,1 mm) pipe and up.
COLUMN 4: Groove Outside Diameter – The groove must be of uniform depth for the entire pipe circumference and must be maintained within the "C" diameter tolerance listed.
COLUMN 5: Groove Depth – This is for reference only. The groove must conform to the groove diameter "C" listed.
COLUMN 6: Minimum Allowable Wall Thickness – This is the minimum wall thickness that can be roll grooved, except for PVC pipe.
COLUMN 7: Maximum Allowable Pipe-End Flare Diameter – This is measured at the most extreme square cut or beveled pipe-end diameter.

COLUMN 1 – Outside Diameter: the outside diameter of roll grooved tubing cannot vary from the tolerance listed. The maximum allowable tolerance from square cut ends is 0.030" (0,8 mm) for 2 – 3" (54,0 – 79,4 mm) and
0.045" (1,1 mm) for 4 – 6" (104,8 – 155,6 mm) sizes; this is measured from the true square line.
COLUMN 2 – Gasket Seat: The tubing surface must be free from indentations, projections, and roll marks from the end of the tubing to the groove to provide a leak-tight seal for the gasket. All loose scale, dirt, chips, and
grease must be removed.
COLUMN 3 – Groove Width: The bottom of the groove must be free from loose dirt, chips, and scale that may interfere with proper coupling assembly.
COLUMN 4 – Groove Outside Diameter: The groove must be of uniform depth around the entire tubing circumference. The groove must be maintained within the "C" tolerance listed.
COLUMN 5 – Groove Depth: For reference only. The groove must conform to the groove diameter "C" listed.
COLUMN 6 – ASTM B-306 drain waste and vent (DWV) is the minimum wall thickness of copper tubing that can be roll grooved.
COLUMN 7 – Maximum Allowable End Flare Diameter: This dimension is measured at the most extreme tubing end diameter.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem
Pipe will not stay in grooving rolls.
Pipe starts rotating during grooving.
Possible Cause
Solution
Incorrect pipe positioning.
Refer to the “Long Pipe Lengths” section on
page 8.
Improper manual grooving technique.
Refer to the “Short Pipe Lengths” section on
page 7.
Rust or dirt has built up on the lower roll.
Remove any dirt or rust accumulation from the
lower roll with a stiff, wire brush.
Excessive ram speed.
Reduce the ram speed to a lower setting.
The ram speed control valve requires
adjustment.
Turn the ram speed control valve’s knob
clockwise two to three revolutions to reduce
flow.
Worn grooving rolls.
Inspect the lower roll for worn knurls. Replace
lower rolls, if worn.
Excessive ram speed.
Reduce the ram speed to a lower setting.
The ram speed control valve requires
adjustment.
Turn the ram speed control valve’s knob
clockwise two to three revolutions to reduce
flow.
The pipe support is adjusted too high.
Check pipe levelness. Refer to the “Long
Pipe Lengths” section on page 8.
The tool is tilted forward.
Check tool levelness. Refer to the “Tool
Setup” section on page 5.
Pipe is “over-tracking” due to incorrect pipe
support positioning.
Move the pipe support to the right. Refer to
the “Long Pipe Lengths” section on page 8.
The stabilizer is pushing the pipe to the left
and off center from the rolls.
Back off the stabilizer to the furthest point to
where it still stabilizes the pipe effectively.
Refer to the "Stabilizer Adjustment" section.
Pipe sways or vibrates from side to side.
Incorrect stabilizer adjustment.
Move the stabilizer in or out until the pipe
rotates smoothly.
While grooving, loud squeaks echo through
the pipe.
Pipe is “over-tracking” due to incorrect pipe
support positioning.
Move the pipe support to the right. Refer to
the “Long Pipe Lengths” section on page 8.
Pipe is not square cut.
Cut pipe ends square.
While grooving, loud thumps or bangs occur
approximately once every revolution of the
pipe.
Pipe has a pronounced weld seam.
Grind weld seams flush with the pipe surface
inside and outside 2" (50,8 mm) back from the
pipe end.
The pump will not start, or the lower roll will
not rotate.
The main power is off.
Turn the main power “ON.”
The thermal units have tripped.
Reset the thermal units.
Fuses have blown.
Check all fuses and replace, as necessary.
Tool comes up to operating pressure
extremely slow.
Air is in the hydraulic system.
Bleed any air from the hydraulic system.
The upper roll will not rotate.
