The only difference is when tuning your machines your throw might be a little different between your liner and shader.

Excellent PDF.  I use a spring tension gauge  & 2-  A-Bar alignment. 1 to build the a bar & springs & the other to make sure the A-Bar nipple is over the center of vise hole. you can buy the or make them. Assembly Vise is a little longer than a bar & the same width. table saw & Block of Wood or PVC Plastic Trim Board, scrap from construction site.  The A- Bar alignment bar tool a wood dowel, pencil, old screw driver, All Thread Bolt Steel tube stock etc. Put a slit on top so a-bar nipple fits in it clamp in tube vice.  I have seen a lot of old timers do it just by looking. I 2 am older 49 I need glasses to be exact.  So I use the tools.  GREAT PDF !   Bill
