    James,
    One thing to consider is adding the increased gantry height option (or not). Some folks have reported that they did not order this option, but now wish that they had done so. I was originally...

    With proper setup, this could be accomplished with a cnc laser cutter to very close tolerance. Otherwise a competent machine shop.

    I typically see 0.003" to 0.006" TIR with my drill presses. This is measured at a precision pin installed into the chuck jaws. This is mostly from the chuck, not the quill taper. I do have one drill...

    I agree with Jim. I use Fusion 360 (free version) and the changes coming in October really will not affect me at all. I also use SolidWorks for 3D modeling, but Fusion 360 is nice because of the CAM...

    My best guess is that you might not have your adjustment tooth for the 1 degree increments engaged completely and/or the lock knob tight. If this is the case, then you will have play in the miter...
