    De Vere horizontal enlargers track laying diagrams

    Anyone has an electronic copy of De Vere horizontal enlargers track laying diagrams?

    I have the full manual, electrical layouts, etc. but those seems missing.

    Many thanks in advance!

    I just would install and adjust the rails perpendicular to the wall holding the photographic paper.
    What do I overlook, that needs diagrams?

    Already did that, using the constructors method ( Pythagoras theorem ) and it is almost fine but not completely, also seems hard to achieve an absolutely flat rail, so I thought that I may be missing something in the fine print which can come in the diagram.

    Of course as at a film-set the rails have to be adjusted in height. The easiest (though not nice) way is to built a "undercarriage" as seen here.

    The more advanced way would be to make grooves in the floor, set adjustable bolts into those grooves and mount the rails onto them: no trip hazard.

    It has them, and everything is almost there, what I am looking for are only tips to lay them perfectly.

    Luis: I think you're to the point where it is just going to be trial and error adjustments. Probably no "tricks" involved ...

    I would get me a long levelling slate and a spirit level and make one rail straight and level. Then I'd adjust the second rail in regards to the first by laying the spirit level transversely over both rails. Then finish off with controllling the second rail to be straight.

    Yes, trial and error, though with some system to it.
