Head/tailstock Alignment

Post by bpastor »

Greetings All,

I've just received my 4th axis kit and noticed that the center of the tailstock is 3/16" higher than the center of the head unit. I do a lot of turning and if my lathe tailstock was that far off, my pieces would be ruined. I have sent an email to NextWave but have not had any replies. Any suggestions?

Hi Bob,

You may have an older tailstock with a new head unit or vice versa. Would you mind taking a picture of both and posting? We would know right away. Sorry for the inconvenience!
