Q: I unpacked my Martin Yale 1611 and tried to run a folding job. NO MATTER the settins it appears the first fold is 2.75 inches and the second fold is on the same end at 1.5 inches. I have tried the z-fold (the one I want), the letter fold, and the fold t
A: If you're adjusting the fold plates, and it's having zero impact on the fold, then the fold plates have probably been installed backwards. Please call Martin Yale's service department, or our own service department, if you continue having issues.

Q: Looking at the Martin Yale 1611 paper folder -- is there a manufacturer's warranty?
A: The Martin Yale 1611 comes equipped with a one year limited parts warranty that protects you against defects in manufacturing.

Q: I'd like to know if the Martin Yale 1611 Folding Machine, can fold (using half fold 8 1/2 x 11) at the same time 6 sheet of paper 20 lbs.
A: The absolute maximum number of sheets it can half-fold as a set is five. Six would be too much. Customers who are attempting to fold multiple sheets of paper simultaneously are usually putting them into an envelope, which is a process much better handled by a folder-inserter.

Q: Do you have this in stock?
A: To keep prices down we ship directly from the manufacturer's stock instead of shipping it to our warehouse, and then shipping it to our customers. This unit is usually in stock however if you ever want to make certain just give us a call for the latest status.

Q: Can you tell me how many sheets can be loaded at a time?
A: It's not a measure of a number of sheets, because that can vary by paper weight. However using standard printer/copier paper you should be able to fit about half a ream inside the feeder. Anymore and there's just too much pressure on the feed wheel.

Q: Do the published dimensions include the full space needed for the machine or just the base? I have a table top that is 30" wide. Will the unit fit on the table if I have space around the table for the feed tray overhang.
A: You'll want a little more than the advertised footprint. The paper needs space to evacuate on the side, and you'll also want that extra space when adjusting the fold plates. This is not what I would consider a big machine by any means but you do need some space to use it. If space just isn't available then I would take a look at the Martin Yale 1711. It's similar to the 1611 except the fold plates adjust themselves automatically. All you would need to worry about is having room for the paper to evacuate out the side.

Q: We have a paper jam and the book directions are not helping. any suggestions?
A: The fold plates can all be removed very easily. Just lift up, and pull out. When they've been removed the paper path becomes visible and any jams can be cleared just by tugging on exposed pieces. If things get really bad, unplug the machine and advance the rollers with your hand, that should loosen things up.
