Anyone who downloaded the cleaned up PDF of the factory drawing of Atlas part # 9-304, please download the corrected copy. The version of the drawing just replaced showed the flat bottom holes for the gib screws and located 1/64 down from the top of the gib. The correct value is 7/64". I doubt that anyone (there were several downloads) has yet actually tried to use the drawing to make a gib because it obviously wouldn't have worked, and they would have said something here.
