I know I have a copy and the book and Connelly book inside my hotel room. Your still not doing it correctly as shown. That lathe is assembled. Your to anxious to do the tests. Assemble the spindle and do the tests again. Also assemble the apron and turn down a aluminum bar. If you insist you can use that long bar, but don't use that way to long tail stock bar and indicate the quill I would turn down a shaft the same OD of the quill and then indicate them. I have photo's in my computer showing this and will attach them later. You are a smart guy and have to see how non Engineering that set up your using is looks?.
