Does anyone have a picture of the alignment tool used to align the safety fence beams?

RE: alignment tool

any laser can be used to align safety curtain, we used a laser level before getting the actual tool, just have someone with a steady hand hold laser level at first safety curtain where the curtains invisible laser starts (start with bottom mirrors), then make sure you're hitting the second mirror then adjust to where your hitting the third mirror and finally the fourth, repeat with the second set of mirrors on the top, its a little tricky but very doable deejay

RE: alignment tool

I just put my head in front of the emitter and look through the mirrors and make sure I can see the receiver. when I have it working I adjust the emitter all directions until the signal is lost and once I define the boundaries I put it in the middle

RE: alignment tool

the mirrors should be an easy fix "bandaid fix It" with any small mirror but if ur talking about the emitter yeah you might have to replace it cook

RE: alignment tool

i currently have the wires jumped to get by time being. i put the mirrors directly in front of the emitters and taped them on and it still wouldnt reset

Unlike you, there are lots of posters that apparently haven't gotten sufficiently enlightened about the forum policies and the number of forums this site hosts.
