David Alciatore, PhD ("Dr. Dave") ILLUSTRATED PRINCIPLES
"VEPS GEMS - Part IX: Plus System Adjustments"
Note: Supporting narrated video (NV) demonstrations, high-speed video (HSV) clips, and
technical proofs (TP), and all of my past articles, can be accessed and viewed online at
billiards.colostate.edu. The reference numbers used in the article help you locate the
resources on the website. If you have a slow or inconvenient Internet connection, you
might want to view the resources from a CD-ROM or DVD. Details can be found online
