    Default need help with a Maxant chain uncapper

    I bought an older Maxant chain uncapper, and it has no adjustment. I want to make it adjustable before I use it. I have read that they cut too deep if you run 9 frames in your supers like I do. I know that they have been made adjustable, and I am looking for the best way to do it.

    You will need to machine out the pillow blocks to allow the reels to slide. Or you can buy the adjustable pillow locks with the bearings from us.

    I am looking at an older uncapper with the non adjustable pillow blocks. How much is the upgrade kit?

    You can get the adjustable pillowblocks from Motion Industries a lot cheaper than Maxant.

    Sorry Jake.

    The bearings yes, not the actual stainless steel black that we machine to allow the adjustment.
