That's what he's saying. Move the headstock towards the tailstock or
away from it to line up the gears. You may be able to just loosen
the banjo and slide it further onto the leadscrew support or the
other way. It's a lot easier to do than loosening the headstock nuts
which are under the bed and hidden by the foot.

It's the lateral alignment. not the mesh.

The tumbler gear is on the headstock and the banjo is on the
bed.You need to loosen the bolts that hold the headstock to the
bed,and align the two gears. RC
