    Sometimes there are thing that come up that just stir me. WE ARE NONE NASA ENGINEERS or will we be. A few thousands will not hurt anything.
    When we look at blueprints they tell us how many of those "0" we can delete. Not everything has to be within 0.0002 - 0.0000

    Thanks Mklots,

    I will make a set. When turning between centers I have always turned a 60 degree angle on a piece of round stock chucked up. It is the easiest way and like you said probably the most accurate. It helps to have a step on it to keep it from moving into the chuck.
