gib adjustment

the goal of adjusting the cross slide and com-
pound slide gibs is to remove sloppiness or "play"
from the ways without making them overly stiff
and difficult to move.
in general, loose gibs cause poor finishes and
tool chatter; however, over-tightened gibs cause
premature wear and make the handwheels dif-
ficult to turn.

3.
Make adjustments in small and equal incre-
ments to the three set screws, then test
the movement of the slide by rotating the
handwheel.
note: Turning the set screws clockwise will
tighten the gib, and turning them counter-
clockwise will loosen the gib.
4.
When you are satisfied with the gib adjust-
ment, keep the set screws from moving and
re-tighten the hex nuts to secure the settings.
5.
re-check the movement of the slide and, if
necessary, repeat steps 2–4.
