Better indication of radial wear is the setup you describe
a( again )don't turn the spindle on at all--instead, you try and whack it
sideways with a stout, non-marking mallet ( on average a 2x4 lumber else
yourfairly heavy aluminum rod will usually suffice, kinda all depends on
machine's spindle size...)
This is a Taig 2019 ER micromill: a 2X4 is larger than the spindle
Then you be needin' a *smaller* hammer is all.....
Dude--in the absence of any specific published engineering limits, then some
of this shit becomes purely a 'judgment call'....
In all, ballpark is I thinkin if I'm lucky you gotten some kinda horse sense
outa my post--that being my only intent...really no sense in carrying it
further then, if this so be the case.
After all, ts not rocket science, dontchaya know...
And gollee gee, I was taking you for a Bridgeport owner all along, and
that was why you suggested a Pine 2X4. I wonder if it would require a
Toyota 4X4 to move a Mori's spindle?
