Excalibur 3S installation manual – Installation

The first stages of assembly are carried out with the machine laying on the floor. NOTE: When lifting the main body from the box do not lift using the black handles on the cutters. DO NOT untie balance weight cord at this stage.

Slacken the bottom two screws on each leg using the 5mm Allen (hex) key and extend the
telescopic parts to the desired length. (These can be re-adjusted later before fixing the
machine to the wall). Tighten screws firmly to clamp in position.

Swing both legs outwards as far as they will go.

Move the lower cutting head to the middle of the main body.

Remove one screw from each leg, using 5mm Allen (hex) key.

Remove two sets of hexagon headed bolts, washers and nuts from the main body using 17mm spanners.

Remove small screw and two washers from the back of the squaring arm (part B)using the 3mm Allen (hex) key. (Right hand side ONLY).

Slide the squaring arm in from the left hand side through the gap in the main body and align the corresponding screw holes.

Fit the two hexagon bolts from the back of the main body, fit the washers and nuts finger tight only.

Do this gently

Fit the screws through the squaring arm into the leg using the 5mm Allen (hex) key, do not tighten fully.

Do this gently

Refit the squaring adjuster block by firstly sliding the steel bar into the opening in the squaring arm, then align the heads of the two screws in the leg to fit the top and bottom holes in the adjuster block. The screws fixing the squaring arm to the machine should still be loose and allow it some movement to help alignment. Insert and tighten the screw (Part D) in the middle hole.

Tighten the two hexagon bolts and two screws.

Do this firmly

Untie and release the balance weight cord, ensure the clamp is closed by pushing down on the clamp handle then slide both cutting heads to the bottom.

Get help to slowly lift the machine and lean it so the front faces towards the wall. Carefully place a scrap of card or board between the top end of the machine and the wall to prevent any damage.

Be careful when lifting
NOTE: Ensure the machine is tied or held in position safely whilst the following steps are carried out.

Replace the screw and two washers in the squaring arm using the 3mm Allen (hex) key.

Do this firmly

Fit the two screws to secure the legs at the top of the main body using the 6mm Allen (hex) key, tighten both screws fully. Tighten the other two adjacent screws.

Do this firmly

NOTE: The screws fit into special grooves in the underside of the supports. The grooves have teeth on their sides to match the teeth of the screw thread, the screw can be fitted in the groove anywhere along its length but be careful to make sure the screw is kept perpendicular to the Support and not screwed in out of line.

Use one of the long screws in each of the holes along the legs of the machine and short screws to fix the support arm to the main body. Ensure the ends of the supports are firmly against the main body and the screws are aligned with the special grooves as explained above.

If a free standing kit is to be fitted to the machine proceed directly to Fitting the optional free standing kit >

Fit the wall mounting bracket to the top of the main body, fasten the screws finger tight only.

Do this gently

If you are going to fit the free standing kit (optional) proceed to Fitting the optional free standing kit >

Ensure the wall is stable and use the appropriate fixings.

Stand the machine vertical and turn around so the machine is now facing away from the wall.

Be careful when lifting

The wall mounting bracket should lay flush against the wall. Mark the position of the wall fixings with a short pencil.

Move the machine away and remove the wall mounting bracket.

Be careful when lifting

Attach the bracket to the wall in the marked position with appropriate fixings then reposition and fasten the machine to the bracket.

Proceed to Checking the machine for squareness >

NOTE: The free standing kit is an optional extra and does not come packed with the main machine.

Extend the telescopic leg to the same length as the front legs less 12cm (5”).

Assistance will be needed for the following stages

Get help to stand the machine up and hold it while the free standing leg is fixed to the bracket using the 6mm Allen (hex) key (nuts and screws provided with the main machine)

Do this firmly

Swing down the stay and attach the fixing block to the back of the main body, tighten all three screws on the stay (using the 5mm & 6mm Allen (hex) keys).

Extend the telescopic leg so the machine stands evenly.
