    Beseler CB7 undid wrong screw advice sought

    Hi Gang.

    I've been cleaning up and trying to align a beseler CB7 that is new to me. The carriage is misaligned and I have undone the wrong screw "attached photo"Click image for larger version.

ID:	192523 attempting to fix it. Does anyone know what this screw on the crossbar does. There was an unwinding sound on the inside of the tube although the motor appears to still work. Any thoughts welcome.

    P.s. does anyone know the actual screws to loosen to align the crossbar.

    Regards Lee

    There is a tension spring in the crossbar-you let it release when you took the screw out.

    There's a way to retension the spring in side the bar. Google might be your friend here. The spring provides "counterweight" for the head so it cranks up easier. I think it has something to do with removing screws, turning the bar itself to tighten the spring and then replacing screws. I've never needed to adjust my Beselers...

    Anyway, "it's a machine; it can be repaired."

    Best of luck,
