I did try shimming with tape and I got really close along the Y. That’s why it didn’t make any sense to me. I just tried taking them off and it made little to no difference. But if we shim the dewalt mount, aren’t we just putting a bandage over the issue? Cause if I shim it and get it accurate, great. But won’t the z axis still not be perpendicular? Maybe this is coming out wrong.

So when we are shimming the mount, are we trying to fix the error in the mount or the entire z axis? Cause then if you shim it, your bit will be perpendicular, but your z will still feed at an angle.
