    Just a curiousity, but the No 98's graduations on vials are in red, at .005". While the No 199 graduates are in black at .0005". Wondering if they were color coded for easy identification.

    It looks like a 6" or 8" Starrett No 98 precision level, or a precursor to it. The No 98 adjuster to set level looks different, and pivot are a little different.

    Another note. Looking at where bed clamp goes though base, it is biased toward quill side quite a bit. I think michiganbuck has a real point with a 3 point shim stack being a lesser evil. Getting the...

    Finding a 3 or 4 groove pulley for a 1.5 or 2hp motor not so easy. But its not really needed either, 2 belts is fine for that hp.

    I think the biggest variable will depend on shim height difference, between quill side and hand wheel side. If the number was .002", your going to have decent contact across all the shims.

    I agree this could be an issue. For some, I think people won't care, as the distortion is minor, or personal skill set level concerns.

    I do have a solution though. It could bridge the difference...

    Short answer yes you will shim both sides, but different thicknesses to both raise height, and get parallel. I'd set a goal for inside of .002"-.003". Don't worry too much about test bar dip yet,...
