That soft solder method is what most of us use only in my case with a set of Starret micrometers as I don't trust verniers .--old school  ;)

It works but I for one wish somebody would come up with a better method .

Odd for some reason it seems I manage 9 out of ten times to miss the correct amount to take off the cylinder base and invaribley resort to changing the thickness of the base gasket .

Fact just yesterday I noticed while changing the bearings and seals on a souped up 200T I had managed to miss that one too and used a 10 thou thick gasket .It isn't that I don't know how to run a lathe because I can cut class one tight threads with out as much as measuring  them .Just can't cut length worth a hoot . ???
