    Took it apart, tried a washer- no joy. Then pulled the bearing caps and re-tightened them- no joy. I did not check the bearing for face to face, but think they are OK- I did replace them when the...
  10. VN 12 table backlash adjustment questions.

    I ran into a puzzle- my VN 12 x-axis has some unexplained backlash.
