Re: Sudden Backlash in Crossfeed

Well I feel like a complete idiot, but the problem is solved. I have a taper attachment on my lathe, and somehow the screw that holds the feed nut had come loose. I tightened it up and the backlash went from .020 to .002. I guess I should have checked that first.

Thanks for all the great advice and I hope I didn't waste too much of your time.
