I have the 4-way turret tool block, sans rockers.  By my calculations the radius the rockers sit in is 5.75; I am led to believe the shoe radius then is 6.00" [given SBL's liking for round numbers and the fact the rockers need to be marginally larger radius so they bear more at the ends than in the middle to prevent chatter]...


Can someone with a PT744NT2 take a few minutes with a straightedge and a set of pin gauges or drill bits and idiot-check my calculations?


Thanks,
