Adjusting the Laser Position of the T1 Tomahawk

The green laser line position, by default, is aligned and centered with the front reference surface of the T1 Tomahawk providing an accurate extension to mark and align adjacent surfaces to.  However, drops, bangs, and other factors may cause the alignment to drift.  This can be adjusted and realigned by the user.

Tools Needed

  • P0 Phillips Head Screwdriver 
  • Framing square (or similar)

1) Remove laser adjustment cover from the T1 Tomahawk

5) Ensure Laser is square and at desired position

  • Laser should be square to T1 body
  • Laser should be centered and square relative to front reference surface for best results
