4. Basic Functions

This section will describe how to use the basic features of the
Andromeda to magnify text and images. Follow the instructions in
section 1 – Setting Up before you begin using the unit.

4A. Reading Table

Unlock the table and place the material you want to read on it. The
table should slide easily in all directions. After transport, the bearing
carriers in the table slides may have moved, tending to restrict the
extent of the movement – this is normal. To correct this, extend the
table in all directions to its full extent, applying sufficient force to re-align
the bearing carriers.
