Manual head alignment

Postby Gino Benjamin » Fri, Oct 15 2021, 2:31AM

Hi guys
I'm looking for a way to set my alignment manually (obviously won't be 100%)without using the clock for calibration.

I assume by clock you mean dial indicator? If so, no you'll need an indicator, precision pin, and tram bar to do the alignments. If you gather all the tools, you can reach out to our service department at service@thermwood.com for alignment procedures.

Thanks and yes that's what I mean.
So you not aware of another method to do the head alignment manually with the hand held programmer? To get it more or less aligned?

You'll need at least a magnetic base and dial indicator to do it.

You should have an email from service with procedures.
