Yes, I do.
I could have zeroed it, but I think the bother of trying to get below 1/2 thou isn't worth it.
When we built yours, we used 4 setscrews, and on mine I used 3....big mistake, and someday I will deal with it. 3 setscrews makes it way more difficult.

Gerry if you need more of these in future, let me know, I may have a spin fixture for the surface grinder on route to me.....along with a weldon air spindle for sharpening endmills (and other uses) and a bunch of other goodies for the surface grinder.

You know, I forgot about that.

Got home yesterday actually, been busy ever since. Fixed a leaking shower tap, a loose door handle, shut off a pilot light on a fireplace that apparently isn’t going to be used this winter, and went for dinner last night for a friends 69th birthday.

As far as I know, I’m around most of the next three days, give me a shout when you get a chance.

Monday we have Nov 11 ceremonies, then to Edmonton, she flies to Onterrible for a course for 3.5 weeks. I then head back to Fort Mac Tuesday afternoon for the next 7 on.
