If you are unsure if you need to change your feed try there are a number of simple ways to check.
1) Remove from your rotary tablet press and inspect the bottom for obvious signs of damage.
2) make sure that the bottom of the feed tray is true and completely flat. Do this by taking a straight edge and running along it looking for gaps bigger than a sheet of paper.
