Adjustable Door Catch
The Door Catch is located on the bottom edge of the door, just below the handle. This catch consists of a spring-loaded, steel ball-bearing mounted in a round, adjustable brass barrel housing. The ball latch will rest in a small depression located on the top edge of the control panel. The outer circumference of this brass barrel is threaded, so it can be screwed in and out to adjust the tension on the door. Simply adjust this barrel to get the tension you want. To increase the latching force, screw the adjustable housing out. To decrease the latching force, screw the adjustable housing in.

The mold is a negative image of the wax. The wax is melted out of the mold through hollow channels called sprues. Lost wax burnout is the process of preparing a casting mold for the melted metal that will be poured into it.
