Loading a sausage that is too big and won't drop in.
(I want to appologize... this message needs to be edited.... We were at the World of Concrete Trade Show and tried to keep the pace of the Blog going while at the show... a big mistake. The following is revised 2/22/2010)
Production is never perfect. Periodically there is a malfunction within the process and the sausage is oversize. Generally speaking the manufacturer does his best to catch this, but some do get to the end user.
An oversize sausage is nearly impossible to load into the tool the normal way, simply dropping it into the barrel. What you need to do is draw the sausage into the tool. Albion's DL-45-T14, DL-45-T15, DL-45-T24, and DL-45-T25 all have the ability to pull the sausage into the tool. These are the professional tools.
The Aluminum Barrel, low cost tools.... which includes Albion's B12S20... are not built with that feature. With these tools all you can do is set return the sausage. (If anyone does have a way to load an oversize sausage in a tool like this, please share.)
The video will show you how to draw an oversize sausage into a dispensing tool.
