Using a 1/4-inch wrench, slightly loosen the screw securing the position
of cam six.
Damage to the table and the shelter can result if over-adjustment is
done. Make small, incremental adjustments alternated with verification
to ensure safe operation.
Rotate cam six a small amount in either direction and secure the locking
(9) Verify both ends of the table top stop before the reference marks align
with the respective ends of the table body.
(a) Press top-left to move the table top to the left (up) and observe that
the table top stops before the reference mark on the table-top frame aligns with the
table body. If alignment is not correct, proceed to step (10).
(b) Press top-right to move the table top to the right (down) and
observe that the table top stops before the reference mark on the table-top frame aligns
with the table body. If alignment is correct, adjustment is complete. Proceed to step
(10) Further incremental adjustment is dependent upon the new stop
position. Any change in one direction affects the other an opposite and equal amount.
(a) If the table traveled further out of alignment, cam six must be rotated
a small amount in the opposite direction. Go back to step (7) and repeat.
(b) If the table traveled closer to proper alignment, cam six is being
rotated in the correct direction. Go back to step (7) and repeat the adjustment.
(11) Upon completion of adjustment, press top-center to center the table top
and lower the head end until the table is 0 degrees (horizontal).
(12) Replace the table sub-top and the table top.
This paragraph discusses maintenance of the Continental X-ray tubestand.
Other major components are required to complete the X-ray system. Since these
components are subjects of their own paragraphs, they are not discussed here.
