Setting the boom is a very important part of the build. I made sure the fuse pod was securely taped to the counter.This is easily done as the Riser has a totally flat bottom on the fuse. I then found a good platform for the laser. I secured the laser to the table after having made sure it was shooting the beam right down the middle of the fuse pod.
I then marked the center of the hole that the boom slides into on a piece of folded paper. After sanding the big end of the boom and cleaning it well with a paper towel and alcohol, I applied epoxy and then inserted it into the hole provided for it in the pod.

While the epoxy was still pliable, I centered the boom at the rear using the laser as my guide and also raised it up to the center mark using the piece of paper that had the reference mark. After having triple checked the centering left and right, up and down, I will let this cure over night. Not very high tech but I think it will come out great.
