It's a bit tricky without the Perch tester -- but it can be done.
The trick is "windage" -- the top heads and bottom heads tend to float
differently with the wind tunnel open. I seem to remember having the top
heads floating -20 on the meter, the bottom +20 and then the stuff
would drop in on line with the windtunnel closed.

Give me a call if I can be of any help. I've never done 'em without the
tester, but I think an analog multimeter may work.
