How do I prevent the paper joint tape from jamming on my automatic taper?

The jamming of the paper joint tape is most likely caused by some type of obstruction within the tape guide itself or at the pyramid blade area. Keep the tape guide area clean with water and a brush and be sure to lubricate with TapeTech Bazooka Oil. If there is a tape jam at the pyramid blade, simply release the blade spring (#050132F) and pull the blade and chain through the taper head. Then use a piece of thin metal band or strap to clean or remove any obstruction that is located in the tape guide or pyramid blade area of the taper head. Pull the blade chain back through the taper head and reattach the spring using the Key Ring (#059067).
