Pitch Adjustment

Below is a copy of the pitch adjustment routines ex  the OPERATING MANUAL

Because the same blades are used on the K3 & K4 units - the instructions are the same.

The  photo below shows a blade at 23.5º wth 2.00 mm Spatula pressed firmly between the Tri Roller flat and blade root. This is a good way to both ensure all 3 pitch settings are identical and the pitchº = 23.5º. The distance is the same for older V10 Conical roller sets.

Adjustments from this reference can then be made with 1/3 rd turn = 1º - so 1/2 turn = 1.5º.

This a K3 unit - K4 pitch null will vary - see manual.
