I can't see what the core type is in the coil, but it will be a tool like a
screwdriver or hex key that fits snugly in the end of the core. Don't be
tempted to use a screwdriver as you can split the core. Some examples here:-


if anyone can tell me if it's a slot or a hex key then I may have something

Subject: VT100 Monitor Alignment Tool

The horizontal width on my VT101 needs adjusting, so I am in need of a
monitor alignment tool (PN 29-23190-00). I have tried searching the web to
see if I can found out what they look like so that I can improvise something
but I have failed to find a picture of the DEC one. Does anyone have a
picture of one? Is it just a long thin screwdriver? Is it the same as a
generic monitor alignment tool like this one:
kit? Even so the picture on that site makes it hard for me to tell what I
need to improvise something.






PS The VT101 is partly working, I think the monitor control side is fine,
but the terminal controller board seems to have problems, I only get random
characters displayed when I power it up and it does not respond to any keys,
not even SETUP L
