    Did you level the machine feet before you started adjusting the headstock? If the bed has a twist to it, that will also throw off the machine's alignment.

    Yes, the pin is there to pivot the headstock, but it will not slide on that end like you want. Sounds like you need to pivot the headstock and get it in alignment with the Z-axis first, then worry...

    Unfortunately, I have never seen or touched a T-1 control. I do know there are differences between it and the T-2 series, but I don't know to what extent.

    Thanks for the ideas. Honestly, some of these are above my pay grade even though you did them in your sleep. :D

    Yes. The Mazak Integrex has in integral spindle motor that also does the C-axis positioning moves. Our Integrex i-400s has that type of spindle motor.

    Older Mazaks from the 80's had a separate...

    Please unbolt the C-shaped tool holders from the tool chain. Those gems never come up for sale.

    You need to type in M11 and then type in M31. M11 activates the tailstock quill and the body.

    M10 is active right now and that means M31 will just extend the quill.
