    Ideal Clicker Machine Model C

    ^^^What he said... Northern Tool has a motor for $179.00ish? even 110 volt motor should work! What I found was the pully size is really important! Too big, and the flywheel rotates too fast, and you get a double click! i know this because o replaced the whole motor, and had a new pulley size on it!

    Well if you use the flat flywheel, the smaller the motor pulley the better... I put a 3.5” pulley in the 1725 RPM motor and it was spinning so fast, that I was getting a double click... move got it working for now! It would be nice to have the manual, in case I screw something else up! Lol

    Ideal model C clicker problems

  14. then work great when I first brought it home… Then that little three-quarter horsepower motor went bad on me, so I replaced it with a 1 hp motor with the same RPMs in the same pulley! Now it’s not showing enough pressure down to cut the leather? Other than that plus me oiling everything really well I haven’t changed anything? I’ve spun the adjusting wheel multiple times trying to get it to work? What am I missig?

    Have you had a chance to get the rest of the manual downloaded? i got mine running the first day, then the motor went bad... Replaced motor, lubed well, but now it’s not putting enough downward force to cut? I did learn that if the pulley on the motor is too large, the speed increases, and gives you a double click!
