    I would be interested to know the 'official' method of adjusting the index error for this instument.
    
    Not having had to take it apart completely (it is in very good condition) I 
    cannot see any obvious index adjustment other than removing the two screws 
    holding the Veeder indicator, and rotating the shaft to obtain the nearest 
    reading - then noting the index error with suitable checks for accuracy.  
    There does not seem to be any continuous fine screw adjust on the instument.
    Any comments appreciated.
