    Is there a chart or formula that I can use to convert from original to the advanced alignment guide.

     

    Currently I am needing the conversions from

     

    B.O

     

    B.5

     

    But it would be great to be able to convert any of the original into advanced alignment..

    This is the newer standard Alignment Guide

    AAG-to-AG-Conversion-Photo

    This is the original Alignment Guide that came with the first W.E. setup I purchased.

    This should help

    Marc,  it seems you have been with the WE less time than me but you are so advanced unlike myself.  My ORIGINAL alignment guide was a strip made out of metal looking nothing like your original that looks like a modified sheet.  Thus I do not understand the conversions based on your images.  ty

    The bottom photo, posted in my previous post above, and in this post too, shown alone, is my original thin steel Alignment Guide from about 6 years ago.  Shown in the earlier post it is laid on top of the new lexan AAG.  The depth key pin holes of the steel guide are placed superimposed over the depth key pin holes on the new Advanced Alignment Guide.  In top photo, in the post above, I have placed the newer style clear plastic basic Aligment guide (from around 2018-2019) up at the top of the AAG.  This is so you could more easily see how the letter scales correlate, and translate the basic guide to advanced guide numbers.

    I hope that makes it clearer.

    B.0 converts to the vertical line between D-E

    B.5 coverts to the vertical line between F-G

    This is the original thin steel alignment guide below:
