I have always had the best luck adjusting the boom so it makes a 90 degree
angle with the upright support.  Then adjust the entire base assembly to
get the period correct (which means you tilt the base so the base and boom
make the same slight angle off of vertical).  You are correct that the mass
end should be slightly lower, but make this happen by adjusting the
leveling screws on the base.

Subject:  Lehaman boom position

I was adjusting my Lehman and got wondering about something.

How should the boom be set? Should it be level or should it have a
slight downward drop at the at the mass end.

If there were a drop at the mass then it would seem that re-adjustments
would be less frequent. And as the movement of the base is what
produces the wave forms then it would seem that as long as the boom
did not touch any of the sensing/supporting hardware then there should
not be difference in it's performance.

Any comments from anyone?
