I am looking for the instructions for a record no. 500 sheet metal cutter.

If anyone could post a copy I would be grateful.

I, too, should be interested in seeing the manual if there is such a thing.

I haven't used mine for some time but note just now that I have them set so that the cutting wheel rotates on its axle but the knurled wheel is fixed (the latter does, of course, rotate with the movement of the handle).

I never use the extra handle on mine, but just use it in the bench vice using the foot provided for that purpose.. There is an adjustment on the bottom wheel which brings it nearer or further away from top wheel. This is done by a pin which locates in two holes on some of these tools and three in others.You have to remove the wheel in order to do this.It works on a cam principle. They were produced from 1947 until the mid 60's I understand.

Thank you for reminding me of these points; it doesn't sound as though you need instructions.

The instructions often give extra tips/uses for machines that were not so obvious, which is why I would like to see them. Be nice to know as well if anywhere new spare wheels could be bought.
