I can find no info on 1015S, only 1015 and 1015F. It occurs to me that the S may signify that it was actually supplied with a Shure cartridge from the factory, rather than without cartridge as most Dual TTs were. In that case no adjustment is usually required, or even possible. If the cartridge carrier is the standard TK12, then the easiest way to adjust the cartridge position is with the plastic gauge.
Here is a link to a sold listing for a couple to give you an idea what they sell for. There is also a new aftermarket replica that goes for $30.

I see no current listings for any.
If you find that you need one, contact me on ARF, where we both hang out.

First time using it I couldn't quite reach the cross hairs, ran out of slot travel. But it was very close. So I dug around in my parts drawer and found another set of screws with smaller diameter heads. This moved the cartridge another hair forward which was just enough. Without an extra thou of an inch to spare I might add, typical German precision. Table sounds excellent start to back with no detectable distortion. Normally a LOMC guy but the V15III I'm finding is a wonderfully musical cartridge.
Out of curiosity, anyone else also having their cartridge screws jammed up tight against the front of the slots in the carrier?

Thank you for replying to my question. I would like to reproduce the alignment you used but I do not own the Dual Plastic protractor nor the Mofi protractor. If you have a chance - can you provide a very precise measurement of the distance between the stylus and the back (straight edge)of the cartdridge holder (removed from the arm)? I could align the Ortofon stylus to the same distance and reproduce your alignement and listen to it.
On the tread link below - there is a picture that suggests that 1 inch and 1/8 is the distance between the back of the cartridge holder straight edge to the stylus.
