I seem to recall this forum recently discussed the use of taut music wire for alignment jobs. I've done every kind of word search that I can and I cannot find that thread. Can anyone help?

IIRC, one of the posts told about shaft alignment and breakage problems when supertankers were introduced; and, the man who figured out how to solve the problem. That's the story I'm really looking for.

I've looked over in PM, too, but I thought it was this forum because I thought (imagined?) Forrest Addy contributed to the thread, possibly mentioning the source of wire sag correction tables.

I'd be forever grateful if someone could point me in the right direction.

Best regards,

Orrin

Remember the thread, but not who authored it, Think the thread had to do with laser alignment if that helps with your search.

Thank you, Ringer. I'll be forever grateful for your assistance.

I still cannot figure out why my searches over on PM didn't find the thread.

Best regards,
