Shifted the rack as far back as space allowed. Factory had it out as far as possible. I get why. Still dumb. Drilled and tapped 1/2”-13 threads. That way the rear folding rack is more secure. The single shackle type bolt was not nearly enough. The rack would still move up and down. Also installed some washers on the rack pivot just because I can. Nice and secure. Feels wayeeeeeee more sturdy now.

Old and busted vs new hotness.

I stimulated a company in Indiana with all new collets with .0002 TIR.
The new spindle collet Chuck is some no name unit but its true.

I was hoping to gain more room under the head but I only gained a quarter of an inch although I ended up buying a whole bunch of new stuff for pretty much what 6 New Old style "z" dt collets would have cost.
