    This machine appears to have some similarities with Ostrek rounding machine for cutting brims. The OP on this thread may have some idea on how to use this but not sure. https://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/ostrek-rounding-machine-for-hatters.102459

    Here is a short video on how the Ostrek rounding machine works:


    The width of the brim is controlled by an attachment of some kind that regulates the distance. Anyway, I have no idea if the operation of your machine is the same but they do have similarities.

    Not smarter, lazier. My college Chemistry prof once told me that engineers are the laziest people in the world, because they tirelessly look for easier ways to do stuff.

    Thank you!
    Yesterday I looked at their site and saw that they had the same brimcutter for sale. Tomorrow I will see if they have a manual for this Grossmann. Thanks!

    Much of my career was in technical sales and I spent a lot of time with Engineers, Mechanical engineers in Pulp Mills, copper mines, and HVAC design and then the staff engineers at the factory. I loved the real lazy ones that relied on us for the specs and once they trusted us would allow us to write the spec for them OR accept our product as an equal. The tighter the spec we could write the better as it eliminated or narrowed the competition. But it reached the point where "or equal" became so broad that if it was made of metal and slowed the fluid down a bit it was accepted.
