I bought this machine and have had to do a lot of work on it to get it functional I put an angle plate on the table and lined it up parallel with the spindle. when I move the saddle in to check it is way off I put an indicator on the spindle and rotated it from side to side and I am off approx .020 from side to side using the edge of the table to measure from in 20 inches. I Think that I am going to have to remove the head and work on the ways in the head The column measures true The machine had been worked on in the past before I bought it They had installed rulon strips under saddle they were loose the head appears to have the same material only it appears to be glued in. I have no experience in scraping and alignment. I need to get this head lined up The machine I have is a lot like the one Kieth Rucker has except it was made in 1935 I can put shims between the ways on the head and bring it in but this can mean messing up the ways on the column. The moglice people helped me repair the saddle so that seems to be ok The table seems to be ok. Where do I start I have a hand scraper just no experience.
