>My 2 month old lathe seems to have developed spindle runout. So much so I can sometimes see my bowl blanks wobbling and see where the gouge removes material part way around the blank. Frustrating. I removed my chuck and checked the runout with a Oneway gauge, measured at the spindle. It is about 6-7 thousandths of an inch. Is this too much? I don't know about lathes, but my tablesaw arbor should have much, MUCH less runout than that.
