Get some mirror stock from a glass company or maybe mirror tiles. Scrape a hole in the coating on the back of one. Mine needed an etching with acid to make it clear enought to see well through it. I take the head off mine and stand on a small stepladder to look down it.
I agree with this method - when I constructed my new darkroom, I removed my Saunders 4500-II from the base and wall mounted it. I removed the light mixing chamber, the lens, and inserted a mirror with a small hole in the center, right over where the lens would be. A mirror facing up on the baseboard, and about 30 seconds of adjustments got everything in alignment. A very simple, inexpensive method of aligning your enlarger.

Good luck!
