    Default micro registration

    alright, so we got an odyssey press with micro registration. unfortunately, the dude we bought it from didn't have time to do anything but load it in our truck so i didn't get to ask him any questions... such as how the fuck do you actually use it.

    me and my friend were trying to figure it out last night and i have come to the conclusion that we are retarded. can one of you experts explain to us newbie idiots in plain english how you work this thing.

    feel free to draw us idiot proof diagrams with multicolored arrows:

    the 2 knobs that run along the printer arm make it so you can moves the screen up and down when you use them simultaneously. used independently the pivot your head tilting it to the left or the right. the one that goes across the print head will drag thew screen from left to right or vice versa. i suck at explaining things but hope it helps!

    that's what we thought, but we can't turn them! we tried loosening bolts, turning knobs, and putting all our strength into it but we can't get them to move.


    and thanks bdix, i will give them a call.

    it's "lefty-loosey". :P Have you tried a torque wrench? Still, I wouldn't loosen anything until you get a copy of the manual.

    the set of knobs behind the clamp i believe are the lock downs for the micros. loosen those up and then try and twist micro knobs. if that don't work i might have some other ideas...

    and invest in some good bungee cords, 'cause eventually some of those springs will break and everyone rigs their press with bungee. :P

    I wonder if anyone has died or lost an eye from catching a spring to the face? That would suck.
