I can still see light between the spindle plate and the chuck back plate. although the crack seems smaller. A piece of paper 0.0035 thick will go clear in to the taper in one spot and opposite that spot the paper will not start into the groove between the two plates.
That is very well described, Sheather, and the small gap at the spindle face causes relatively major chuck face and O.D. runout when you measure it. It is also not repeatable, as you described. There is no way to do accurate work when that problem exists. I suspect that it exists unknown on many D1 series spindle/chuck fits, with many users wondering why the accuracy is so poor and unpredictable.The location of the gap moved depending on which cam I tightened first. If I understand correctly, I am able to pull it out of square with the camlocks, since it is such a short taper and the flat spindle face is not in proper contact with the chuck.
