Ballen the angles you use how good were those 90 degrees so, do you have milling them too 90 degrees? Thinking about how you adjusted it if it wasn't 90 degrees, hope you understand what I mean best regards volvo 140140I used my smaller rotary table, 250mm diameter.

okay thanks. I meant about your angles plate if they were 90 degrees to the table. I plan to use an angle plate but it is not milled on the inside, I think I will milling it so it will be straight to the face of the tabel. I have made the adapter that I intend to attach to the angle plate which then fits in the quill like you did. then it should be straight in ( y ) that direction i hope because this you cannot adjust when you have that plug in the quill. or maybe I'm thinking wrong.Not sure which angle you are referring to. As I recall I clocked the facing flange for concentricity as I rotated the rotary table, and for level (fixed Z) as I rotated the rotary table. Probably I got both within about 0.01mm of zero. Good enough for this! The vertical head has worked well ever since (and been rotated and then retrammed many times.)
PS: Pretty sure that I also checked that the flange face was perpendicular to the vertical spindle direction.
Cutting metal is the lowest order of the job. Work holding and alignments take precedence.
I am again thinking it's not the meashing of the gears in the vertical head that make the noise but the inside of the long reach head.
In the process of replacing the bearings that sit on the gear that drives both horizontal and vertical spindles. There are 2 ball bearings 6010.
