Your alignment is out in the vertical. There are two prisms on each side and you want to adjust the lower ( on the right side ) prism so that you correct the image in the vertical dimension. Caution : it doesn't follow that just because the image seems to be out on the right hand side that it is the right side that fas to be adjusted. So be prepared to adjust the other side. Also the best is to adjust little bit on each side until alignment comes right.

How to just read sights on my tanfaglio .45 . It is shooting low and slightly left.

In the case of a non-user adjustable sight, any adjustment should be entrusted to a qualified and experienced gunsmith, though few hand guns are superbly accurate and part of the skill of using a hand gun is to compensate for sight inaccuracies - knowing it shoots low and left then aiming high and right by the right amount is what it takes...

Headlight height for mot

Hello, If you have a State mandated headlight aim requirement, just ask at a testing facility for the specs. Usually you have the vehicle about 20-25 feet from a wall and the headlights should be no higher than 42" off the ground.
You would set the drivers side beam slightly to the right and lower than the right hand beam. This way, you do not blind oncoming cars, but can adjust the right side to view the curb farther ahead than the left.

With the new 39" high mini-compact cars, the beams would point skyward, just as a 4x4 raised suspension pick-up would point downward.

Its a case of a standard equally applied to every vehicle and not giving the best results. Myself, I adjust the righthand beam up and out so that a curb or lane marker will keep me centered in my lane.

Just log her out using the 'account' link at the top right of the page, and log yourself in. Since the computer saves the cookies (or session) from when your granddaughter logged in, it is automatically using her profile.

My side by side fridge door does not close by itself when released

It is likely that your fridge is tilted left or right, and possibly forward at the same time. Most refrigerator doors will self-close if the fridge is slightly tilted both back and to the handle. The fridge is raised or lowered by adjusting the front feet or rollers.

The problem you'll encounter with a side-by-side fridge is that if you adjust for the right-hand door to self-close, there's a good chance that the left-hand door will want to stay or fully open; if you don't check it while making the adjustments. It can take a little extra time to make sure the adjustments make the front both perfectly level left to right, AND slightly higher in the front than the back.

Please rate this reply if you found it helpful - good luck!

I see a double image through my Nikon Travelite 12x24s

Hello Scott

While I am mostly a camera expert , I have seen the problem that you are describing. Inside the camera there is a little reflector which is used to invert the picture and focus it to the viewing eyes.

These reflectors are stuck to the camera casing using epoxy and the problem is that with time the epoxy becomes brittle and cracks. When it is cracked , the lens will move out of it's fixed posistion but the epoxy does not always break loose fully which is why you do not hear any rattle.

You could attempt to open it up and glue the lens back into posistion using some new epoxy , but you could possibly have some problems with the screws of they are not standard.

In this case ask a jeweler to repiar the binocular for you as this should not cost much to more than $15.

Kind Regards

High beam adjustment, how do you do it seams mine are reaching for the stars thaks john in wisconsin

two screws on each headlight control the direction the headlights are aimed. One screw, usually at the top but sometimes below the headlight, adjusts the headlight up and down. The other screw, located to one side, controls the headlight from right to left. Turning the appropriate screw one direction or the other will change the direction the headlight points.
In order to aim your headlights you need to have a flat vertical surface you can aim your headlights at in front of a level surface on which to park the car. If your driveway is level your garage door is the perfect place to aim your headlights.
The tools you will need for this job are simple. Masking tape is used to mark where the headlights are to be aimed and a screwdriver is needed to adjust the headlights. A tape measure will be necessary to measure the distance of the vehicle to the surface you're using to check the aim and to measure the up and down distances from your marks.
To start you will want to pull your car quite close to the surface you are using to aim your headlights. This is done to allow you to mark, with the masking tape, where the headlights are on the car. With the car right up against the vertical surface, and your low beam headlights on, the center of the beams will be directly in front of the headlights. Use your masking tape to mark straight across where the headlights are shining. Use short pieces of masking tape to mark vertically the center of the low beams.
, back your car about 25 feet away to check the alignment of the headlights. The brightest spot on your low beams should be about two inches below the masking tape and slightly to the right of the vertical marks. Use the adjustment screws to move the beams up and down, and right and left, until the headlights are aimed properly.
If your car only has two headlights, that's all you need to do. With the high beam lights integrated into the single headlight there is no further adjustment possible. If you have a four-headlight system you will next need to adjust your high beams. Switch to your high beams and adjust them so they shine just below the line and are centered between your two vertical marks.

good luck

My white 2000 serger is dropping the thread on the first needle when I sew with it- the loopers, both upper and lower are working correctly in conjunction with the "right upper" needle. I have changed...

Could be as simple as poor quality thread (not using MaxiLock thread), the needles not inserted properly (the left is slightly higher than the right), a missing stitch forming pin on the needle plate, the needle bar being too high or a looper timing issue.

As the needles raise, the upper looper should move to the right with the right needle tip slightly above the eye of the looper.

Soft digital images/ not sharp

Wow... Yes it can be fixed but only by a professional tech. You have either slightly shifter the reflector or damaged the sensor. There is also a possibility that you have loosened the auto focus as well. It may be just a simple adjustment. If it becomes too expensive of a fix I REALLY suggest an upgrade to a 40d. They are now affordable and there is a significant improvement in the models. You lenses are also compatible.
