Broken Sprue Lever

Broken Sprue Lever

Please note the section in the instructions on what to do if the sprue plate does not swing all the way under the sprue hold down bushing. If the sprue lever cam does not bear against the mold block the sprue lever will often break.

This is because when breaking the sprue, only the power of your pull is doing the job. When the cam is against the mold block, you have a mechanical advantage which saves effort on your part and breaks the sprue with ease.

If you discover that the cam is not against the mold block and you must break the sprue, place a small phillips head screwdriver between the cam and the mold and operate the sprue lever.

To order a replacement sprue lever, please order part # SC1156
