A head-positioning apparatus properly aligns the head for skew and lateral position adjustments. The apparatus includes a pillar firmly fastened to a base plate with the pillar including a dovetail cutout section for mating with a head-mounting plate. The head is fastened to the mounting plate rotating around a dowel pin for skew adjustment with bolts for holding the head to the mounting plate after adjustments are completed. A differential screw fastens the mounting plate to the pillar and allows precision positioning of the head in the vertical direction.
