There have been many posts about leveling and checking for twist in machinery. Haas has put out a video showing how their techs do it on a turning center.

Enjoy the video, I know many of you will have comments, please keep them useful and remember this method wont work on all machines. But it is nice for them to share.

By putting a magnet arbitrarily on the turret and leveling that magnet by tapping it. Means the Lathe front to back is not actually level to the world.

Does that matter?

The longitudinal direction is only leveled with the small Vial?

Have I been too picky in the past?
