Nate from New Tech Machinery walks through the step-by-step process of realigning the gold bars using basic tools. This video shows how to adjust the gold bars on your machine if they become misaligned, which can cause issues like oil canning, deformed panels, and uphill/downhill profiles. He covers verifying the B position and setting a baseline measurement, adjusting the L-2 mount rail to be parallel to the string at 26″, setting the L-1 mount rail to be 26.5″ from the string, and making adjustments by loosening bolts/clamps and turning the alignment tubes. Properly aligning the gold bars is critical for producing high-quality panels on the job. The video provides the guidance needed to get your machine realigned and operating correctly again.
