“9,” “0,” “2,” “0,” and “1".   DO NOT skip any box or write decimal periods. Block  6:    ASCENDING  REGISTER  BEGINNING. Obtain  this  number  from  the  meter  head’s  “TOTAL (Ascending)” register reading and enter it in the same manner as explained above for descending. Block  7: METER  OPERATOR. Clerk  accepting custody of meter enters initials on all three copies. Block  8: SUPERVISOR. Meter  custodian  enters initials on all three copies. After the required information has been entered on PS Form 3602-PO, the meter custodian will issue the operating lever locking key, the triplicate copy of PS Form  3602-PO,  and  release  the  meter  to  the  meter operator. OPERATING THE POSTAGE METER Now  that  you  have  the  meter  head  in  your possession,  you  have  to  engage  it  to  the  meter  base. But before you can start producing meter tapes, make sure that ·   the  power  plug  is  securely  inserted  into  a grounded electrical outlet, ·   the operating lever is positioned all the way to the rear (OPERATE position), ·   the setting levers are positioned all the way up (indicator window should show 00.00 amount), and ·   the date has been set correctly and dater cover is closed. To change the date, raise the dater cover and move the plastic wheels so that the proper date is in line with the date index (metal ridge).  The day and month can be changed by turning the proper plastic setting wheels; the plastic wheel at the left of the date index turns the day  units  wheel  at  the  right,  and  the  10th,  20th,  and 30th of the month is set by moving the notched wheel located at the right of the month wheel. The year can be changed  by  turning  the  individual  metal  printing wheels (see figure 8-11). After  changing  the  date,  run  a  “zero”  tape  by depressing the tape trip lever and verify if the date is correct.   Also  check  the  ink  tone  on  the  tape.   If  the imprint is light or uneven, add ink to the ink roller.  DO NOT over ink the roller or smudged impressions may occur. Now that the meter is ready, follow the steps given below to produce meter tapes. ·   Set  the  amount  by  sliding  the  SETTING LEVERS  up  or  down  to  the  correct  amount. Verify that the INDICATOR WINDOW displays the selected amount (see figure 8-12). ·   For  amounts  $.99  or  less,  depress  the  TAPE TRIP  LEVER  (see  figure  8-13).   For  amounts $1.00  and  up,  first  press  and  hold  down  the HIGH   DENOMINATION   BUTTON,   then depress  the  TAPE  TRIP  LEVER  (see  figure 8-14). 8-20 DATER  COVER POSTMARK  DIE DATE  INDEX (METAL  RIDGE) DAY  UNITS  PLASTIC SETTING  WHEEL PCf0811 Figure 8-11.—An example of a postage meter print mechanism.
