Now I’m wondering about mine! I bought two of them, one for each shop. They have served us well so far but they’re used for woodworking only. If we did metal work i’m sure they wouldn’t make the grade so to speak but they will be replaced with the Deltas they were cloned from as soon as one shows up on CL. I guess if we haven’t noticed it by now it’s good enough for what I do but it sure would be nice to know they’re within specs.

As for a straight rod, I use a piece of a carbon arrow from my bow. They’re usually straight to .001 over a 30 inch arrow. Chuck it up and use a dial indicator to measure run out. Ive done this on router tables and it works great.
