How do I ....

>figure out what's out of whack?

All my turnings are 1/6th out of round. Two opposite side of a bolw are i/8th while teh otehr two opposite side are 3/16th. I can see the wobble while the blank is turning and I have spent some frustrated hours trying to make blanks run true. At first I was thinking I was doing something to make it happen.

It is the same no matter which chuck I use. Interestingly - to me - is that each talon I make does not sit true in jaws either.

The only thing I can think of is the head stock spindle.
How would I know?
What should I do to fix it?

BTW, It's a Stubby.

thanks for your input.
