[sdiy] My Player piano roll project... refining my design

Hi JP

I would recommend two of these sensors operated in linear mode, with a 
small difference in their physical position and invert the signal from 
one of them.
 From these two signals you would get a 'detent' differential signal 
that would tell you the lateral error and allow you to adjust the 
horizontal position of the paper more accurately.

Best wishes

Gerry
