I have a Craftex CT129N mill/drill from Busy Bee.
Similar to if not the same as this Lathemaster.
As a newbie I understand the process although I can't find an answer to the following questions. And yes I have both a dial test indicator and dial indicators c/w holders.
1) Should one use a collet or go with the drill chuck?
2) Am I right in thinking one must tighten the mill head locks, quill lock, table locks, and release the fine down feed before tramming a mill with the table?
3) What is an acceptable degree of error as it relates to measurements?
4) Now I've tried with everything at rest meaning none of the locks tightened and then with all the locks tightend and there's a huge difference. Can't seem to find the answer in my books so what am I missing here?
Please remember I'm a newb and this is my first crack at squaring a mill.
