    Default Acu-Rite Mini-Scale alignment bracket

    I am hoping a member can put their hands on a 30 year old "temporary alignment bracket", that they put somewhere in a drawer or toolbox, and measure the length of the standoff (dimension "A" in my sketch below) and post it in this thread. That way I and other future lost souls can fabricate what is needed to get the reader head into proper alignment when re-installing one of these scales. Thanks!

    I'm looking at the AR-5 manual. In the drawings, the alignment brackets look the same as the ones for the Mini. Does anybody know if they were the same part?

    The bracket is the same, the length of the screws are what seperates them. I have like 2 pair left.

    Strange the sketch is no longer showing.
    Other dims you will need to make one.
    Length of larger dia on pin is .049 so overall pin length is .226.
    Small diameter is .306, large diameter is .419.

    Making them now. I'll make a clearer version of the drawing with your dimensions and post it later. Thanks again!
