Tormach 8L tailstock alignment

The tailstock on my 8L seems to be a little bit off on the X Axis. How do I adjust it back to center ?
I see a couple of set screws on the Tail Stock, which one should I use to adjust on the X-Axis.

Sandeep,

You use a combination of both screws to do the adjustment. If both screws are cracked loose, tightening on a specific side, will shift the tailstock to that direction.

Hi Sam,
Thanks for the response, there is a set screw at the back of the tail stock , does this need to be loosened for this adjustment ?

This set screw on either side of the tailstock, are the two screws you will be utilizing.

Thank you Sam,
That worked; all aligned now.
