Setting up feeders

Adjusting 8mm Feeders for thicker components

If you try to feed thicker 8mm tape through the standard 8mm reel configuration, the parts may pop out of place when the tape advances because they catch on the bottom. To accomodate thicker parts (like 1.5mm high 0805 10uF caps, etc.), you can remove the plastic guide underneath the tape as follows. This allows more bottom clearance for the tape.
