What should the actual 2B carriage speed??

Need to know speed because the plate is washed off and cannot see it. We measured and it moves 6 3/8″ per minute.

  1. Mike,

    I believe I talked to you the other day about getting a new plate.

    If Janette does not have one and we do not have any pictures of it in the manuals then the only way would be to put it in a certain range then engage the half nut then spin the spindle one rotation and measure the distance it moved with a dial indicator. This will tell you the pitch which you can then translate into TPI. Movement per min. is only relative to the RPM you are running.

    Give me a call if you need further assistance. 800-654-3262 ext.140
