Alignment on a Royal H

The capitals type high. Where can I find the adjustment screws or nuts?

Re: Alignment on a Royal H

The adjusting nuts are located under the machine, near the sides. If you check the 1945 Ames service manual here, it has a diagram and instructions that are applicable in regard to capital alignment for an H, even though the manual is for a KMM. The manual is towards the bottom of the page, and the section you are looking for is "Motion and Shift Mechanism, on page 20 (pdf page 24.)

The lock and adjusting nuts take a 7/16" wrench.

Thanks! I found the nuts and aligned them pretty well, though not perfectly. First time I do this. Chewed up the nuts a bit using pliers and busted a knuckle. But I'M happy!
