Well, unfortunately due to the holiday rush and extreme weather we’ve been having on the West Coast, I didn’t get the new quill in time for the break. I’m disappointed but given the weather – we’ve got 2-1/2′ of snow on the ground in a city where 1″ of snow is a big deal – it’s unavoidable. I’ve been house-bound for the last 8 days as my car can’t negotiate the snow in the alley and is getting high-centered as it plows under the bumper.
Anyhow, here are some pics of the new quill from Mike. Pretty space-age in appearance, and he measured less than 0.0007″ runout at the tip of the dop. Now that’s much better than the original 0.0055″!
I hope everyone is having a good Christmas break!
