OK, got to this point
There are two allen head set screws on the lower left front of the spindle base as seen in the top picture. In the manual on the base frame is shows an "adjusting block" in this area on the frame. There is a gap between the spindle casting and frame casting under these screws. I took the left screw out and it has a machined end on it. There are two allen head bolts on each corner of the spindle casting and the spindle is belt driven.
It's taken a while to get to this point and apparently I'm going to have to put the chuck back on to make another test cut after any adjustments. Unfortunatley, the covers will not go back on the machine with the chuck in place, and you can't get to the base bolts with out the cover removed.
1. Should the drive motor be loosened up to make any base adjustments?
2. Shifting the spindle base on its mounting pad does not make a perpendicular move with the X axis. How to you take out a taper unless you have a jacking bolt or shim the spindle?
