    My wife asked me what I wanted for my birthday years ago. I told her a blonde with big tits. ( sorry Ms Scott)

    I don't think I would half-ass a project like that.

    Go to the Twp and tell them what you want to do and listen to what they have to say. They may be more helpful than you think.

    My Okuma is a simple 2 axis lathe so I don't have much experience with the finer points of what this control wants.

    When the chuck was made the backlash was taken out by chucking at that spot. Try chucking a piece of stock at the other spots and run an indicator on it. You’ll see.
