Just so you know, it is completely normal to whack the leveling feet of brand new machines with a 3lb ball peen hammer to adjust the machine in the line. The machine was moved several inches using this method.

Brand new 180K+ machine. Factory FSE was doing this. I asked him if he though this was a good idea. His response: "We do this all of the time"

All I have to say is WOW.....

That is funny....made my day. I have installed a lot of machines and usually use a monkey wrench and maybe a hand jack to help out.

As long as you verify the cal sticker on the hammer, should be OK.

The FSE must be in great shape, for that much movement I would have had to break out my sledgehammer.
