Cut Pile NK01 Tufting Gun: How to change the scissors
This is a full step by step tutorial to change the scissors of your cut pile NK01 tufting gun when they are broken or you need to sharpen them.
Before you start you want to make sure your tufting gun is unplugged.
First you want to unscrew the four screws on the head of your tufting gun.
Lay all these parts safely to the side, make sure to not lose anything
Now you can take the whole front part off of the tufting gun.
Next you want to unscrew the nut that connects your lower bearing to the slide with the scissors and pusher.
Also slide out this whole part now.
You have finally reached the final screw. Unscrew the scissor part and replace it with the new scissors. Tighten it back on the slide.
Slip the slide back into the two guiding rods. Make sure the little metal part highlighted in the picture slides into the U formed metal slide.
Now slip back on the lower bearing and tighten the nut.
Now put the front part of your gun back on and tighten the 4 screws. Be sure to have it the correct way around with the scissor adjustment block facing the left side.
Be sure all screw are tightened well and check your scissor closing mechanism.
