I trammed my mill tonight. I used the calibrated Federal runout gauge
that my brother in law gave me a few weeks ago. Also, I went straight
to the table top with a six inch span rather than using the glass.
Here are the
Rear: +0.005 (about 0.00042 across a 0.5 inch cutter)
Right: +0.014 (about 0.002 across a 0.5 inch cutter!)
Rear: +0.001 (about 0.000083 across a 0.5 inch cutter)
Right: 0.0 (nada!!!)
the knee MUST be locked to get these results.
the quill through the entire 360 degrees never had more than 0.001
variation! I'm pleased :)
Had to use
two pieces from the side of a Coke can in shimming the front to
rear. Left to right is built in so it was easy. Have to get those
