    It's possible but I'm not sure why or how. As far as I can tell, the tool holder pilots are machined to slip into the turret bores and bolt on in one position only. I'm not sure if they've ever...

    Is that on your rear turret or the cross head slide? Mine doesn't have the turret on the cross slide, just on the rear. Found out when we got the thing, it came with feet to put it on so the level...

    I'm going to check the level first and make that's good. Maybe that'll be enough.
  8. I'm hoping it doesn't come to that on this end. ...

    I'm hoping it doesn't come to that on this end. If it does I might just end up chucking a boring bar and boring the mounted sleeves on the turret to make sure the alignment is true. Either that the...
