2-13. OPERATING PROCEDURES FOR BUTTON SEWING MACHINE - continued.
n. To Change the Feed Plate.
(1) When both button clamp and feed plate are to be changed, remove button clamp (para. 2-13o)
before removing feed plate (3).
(2) When only feed plate is to be changed, first raise button clamp, then insert fingernail beneath
chamfered end of feed plate (3), raising it sufficiently so that feed plate (3), can be grasped with the
fingers, and withdraw feed plate (3).
Never pry up spring (4) as this would probably injure the spring or render it useless.
(3) To replace, insert feed plate (3) all the way back beneath spring (4) to insure that the two shallow
studs, on the under side of feed plate (3), engage the holes beneath spring (4).
