    Hi,

    Does anyone know if some sort of adjustable spindle mount is available anywhere? My machines spindle is slightly off axis which leaves lines on the work (tramming?). Would be great if there was something adjustable so I could easily dial out any errors as at the moment I just have 4 bolts holding the spindle which is no so easy to adjust...

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Not quite the modern tech answer I was looking for!
    Moaning has been the reason I haven't mentioned my machine is based on UNsupported rails! I have seen some of the great builds on here and mine needs a lot of work (maybe less work to start again...) to get to those levels!
