Calibration for Linkage

Having trouble calibrating Maslow. I have a 10 foot top beam and am using the 45 degree linkage but the sled is hanging lower than it should and is a few inches below the center of the board. I went to Webcontrol and adjusted it so it would extend less of the chain when I click the “extend chain lengths” button. This helped it hang higher but now I when I try to calibrate I get the error message “Unable to find valid machine position” and it doesn’t move. Not sure where I went wrong or how to fix it.

Reset set your chains and make sure your rotation radius is correct. The ring radius is shorter than the linkage distance.

Rotation Radius was my issue, thanks for your help. It seems to be working now.
