The alignment tool is for toe-in. You can make one out of plywood or cardboard. It's a right-angled triangle. The base measures 2 1/8" . Height measures 11 7/16". Set the triangle with the 90 degree corner at the front inside of the speaker. Position the speaker so the hypotenuse is aimed directly at the center line of your seating position. Done deal.

I was able to supply Neil a PDF of a TSM owners manual (Neil, hopefully you got my e-mail with the TSM PDF attached Neil), which I am happy to e-mail to anyone else who may need a TSM (or VSM to) owners manual.
I do have several of the official Merlin wood "alignment tools" on hand and can certainly send one along to a VSM or TSM owner who may have misplaced theirs. BTW, I can confirm there is no difference in the size/shape of the tool for the VSM and TSM - the speaker toe-in/alignment set-up for both speakers is the same.
A note for all Merlin VSM and TSM owners: I am/will be providing service, maintenance and upgrades for Merlin VSM and TSM owners. Folks who know me, know that I go way back with Merlin and that Bobby was a close friend of mine. I can think of nothing more fitting to do than to try to help Bobby's speakers live on and am endeavoring to do that. - Rich B Signature Sound.
