Re: GSM feeder question | 14 January, 2000

The feeders that you are probably refering to are made by hoover-davis. They only have adjustable pitch( electronic ). You probably will not find a universal feeder that has adjustable width. This is because the guide track is positioned on the left edge of the feeder causing a different x-axis pick point depending on the width of the feeder. I believe Wayne Bracy represents hoover-davis in the New England area. You can find his e-mail address on this site if you want to know more about those types of feeders. Then again, I could be wrong! Jax

You can also try calling Universal. I don't know what the situation is like in the States but we can't get the Multi-pitch feeders directly from Hoover-Davis here because of contractual agreement between Hoover-Davis and Universal.

Same in U.S. You can only purchase the HD feeders from Universal.
