Ives-Way Automatic Can Sealer - Instructions for Fish Cans

The tables below show the chuck size, number of spacers and the position of the seaming roller screws for various sizes of cans. If the chuck must be replaced, first remove the existing chuck.

Then reposition the seaming roller screws, but do not tighten yet. Loosen the thumb screws and slide the 3-hole nuts out as far as they will go. Tighten the seaming roller screws by hand only, then install the correct size chuck. Adjust seaming rollers.
