The instructions for alignment of early Versalab M3 grinders is located at https://www.versalab.com/BURRALIGNMENT.html
. We will shortly be adding the information about the tools necessary to accomplish this work. It can also be seen below.Note
that all this pertains to grinders made before 2013. Serial numbers before 327 - with the exception of 331.Alignment tools
To perform the alignment you will need a magnetic indicator stand and a lever style test indicator that reads at least to .01mm or .0004", hex wrenches both 5/16" and 3/8", some plastic and steel feeler gauge stock. It is best that you would also borrow or buy a torque wrench and hex sockets to suit. A better stand and indicator will be handier but will add considerable to the cost.Inexpensive stand and indicator.
