We've drawn upon our vast experience with wallboard machinery to design and build a Stretcher that will provide our customers many years of reliable operation, with a minimum of maintenance. Precision crafted, the rugged and heavy duty EDGE Wallboard Machinery Company Felt Stretcher features two actuators which provide smooth and trouble-free travel with the vertical and cross machine forces regulated by the gibs and slide. The stainless steel screw only responds to the machine's directional forces. To assure fast and easy felt straightening, the air operated clutch was designed to provide independent adjustment to both sides of the felt. Our standard Stretcher's travel is from 24 to 72 inches in 12 inch increments, its compact simple design gives you many mounting options. We have designed our Felt Stretcher using manufacturing processes, which enable us to provide the minimum turn-around on delivery.Standard Features Include:
