The present invention proposes using tubular essary to attach the support plate to the machine magnetic solenoids, in conjunction with actuator base. When the solenoids are de-energized, the pins between the support plates and the machine plate can easily be removed. The process also pro- base. The actuator pins are permanently attached to vides feedback as to whether or not the actuator pins each support plate; thus removal is not necessary. have reached the appropriate depth/location. If the The pins slide into the tubular magnetic solenoids pins are not properly situated, the system will alert when energized thereby, providing the support nec- the operator to make an appropriate change.
