the instructions with my new harbor freight 12" lathe call for
me to level the thing within a couple of thousandths of an inch.
are they kidding? how important is that ? how the $#%%^$#@@~! would
you do that even if you wanted to-- and what measuring tools would you use
any help in how to level a lathe (or rationalizations for not doing so )
would be appreciated.
