Bolt the headstock end down snug then check to see which side of the tailstock end foot is not touching the benchtop. Put shims under that side. Making sure the bed isn't twisted is easiest if it's level - but with a precision level you can adjust the shims to get the same amount of front to back tilt at both ends.

An option some years on the 9" Workshop (and others with the bench mount option?) was an adjustable tailstock end foot. The procedure with that one was loosen the adjuster screws, bolt both feet down snug then use a level and the adjuster screws to ensure there's no twist in the bed.

Thanks Ed! 

I have read that adding a concrete base to an existing table was a recommended solution for these smaller lathes such that they could more easily build high tolerance parts for the war effort. A 3" thick concrete slab and a 1" steel plate weigh about the same. I don't know which I worry about more... my ability to pour a flat slab on concrete or prying my wallet open enough to pay for a 1" thick slab of CRS!  :)

If the table top is not nice and flat, what is the procedure for leveling, or mounting the lathe so that bed twist is not an issue?

Thanks for the suggestion!
Don


Re: headstock stock run out?

Johnny,
Do not worry about having taper in your piston.

Real pistons are tapered and are barrel shaped. They DO NOT have a true cylindical shape. Generally, the bottom of the piston has the largest diameter, though it isn't truly round.

Normally I wouldn't worry about a .0005 tolerance. However,
the plans for the  small IC engine I am building call
for the piston to be no more than .0012 smaller than the
cylinder. With an inch and a half long cylinder, a .0007
difference in diameters to start with seems to be too much.
 
  Please feel free to correct me if I am missing some thing
here. I am teaching myself and can use all the help I can
get. Thanks

Another suggestion if you have some time...

Search Craigslist ( Both local and around the country ) for a machinist who is retiring.   They usually have excellent equipment and have taken great care of it.  They are looking for someone who is willing to pay more than import prices for items.  Also they are usually willing to make a better deal on a "bundle".

Nice bench! It looks very sturdy. The one leg under the "tail" seems somewhat unique. The vertical space for the chip tray seems generous.

Thanks for sharing,

After checking out the net for information on the AXA Multifix. Decided to buy a AXA Multifix Type A including 4 holders, made in Germeny, no Chinese copy. It came in last saterday and after some modifications it fits the original toolpost. So now both type toolpostholders can be used on the lathe.

Bill, where did you find a school that teaches machining? I have been looking for one for a long time. By the way, I don't think you have to justify buying a super precision, beautiful tool that will last you the rest of yours and your children's lives if taken care of. If you can afford it, buy it.
