    Thank you. I cut cycles and glue them together on the axis. I also put two pins, to prevent spin. Then i run it and make it straight wtih a chisel and a block ( like lathe)

    I like the idea of the wedge for tilting the table, but you could have put a long threaded rod to push of pull the wedge ? (easier for fine tuning ?)
    thanks
    Cheers !

    as the angle of the wedge is small and the wedge long, it is easy to fine tune. Thanks for the comment
