The real goal here is not to make the lathe level, so much as it
is to remove twist from the bed. (If a lathe had to be level
to operate accurately, lathes on ships wouldn't work very well.)

Using a precision level is one way to achieve this. Taking test
cuts and adjusting out the taper is another way.

treatises on this topic with step-by-step instructions...
