    Make sure it hasn't been dropped. It is a precision tool worth it's weight in gold.

    The manual does state how to check if the beam is perpendicular, but not how to fix it. I suppose shimming would work.

    I have one and it makes enlarger alignment very easy. Nothing is more frustrating than an enlarger out of alignment--I speak from experience. My guess is they got a heap of darkroom equipment for a few bucks, so offer them $10 and see what happens. Used, they still sell for around $100.

    Over the years I have tried many methods for aligning enlargers. The Versalab works very, very well.

    Don't sell it, ever. You'll want to check the alignment frequently and adjust if needed. Enlargers can and do fall out of alignment with use.

    what's in the box?
    I have one still in the original box and packaging.
    It has the laser box
    1 glass plate 5 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches
    3 glass plates about 3 x 1 inches, 1 has a white label in the middle?
    A rubber band Thingy for holding the glass plates
    An Allen wrench for opening the case to change the battery

    A few notes:
    1) The 4 screws that hold the top plate on should be loose. If they are thight, it warps the plastic box slightly, then it wobbles. Of course we know 3 points define a plane, but they put it it a box with 4 feet, so if it is only slighty warped it wobbles.

    2) The laser alignment itself is adjusted on 3 points with setscrews.
