    Hi Guys

    Just taken my carraige off the bantam for a service/clean and adjust

    The carriage gibs if you can call them that dont have any adjustment in them.

    the right hand gibs/plates closest to you (when you stand in front of the lathe) has a slit in the right side of it but thats for a carrage clamp

    all I can think to do is shave a little of the mating face, but if I over do it ill need to shime it out

    I am guessing there is no adjustment in the carraige then ????

    I believe it adjusts from the back. The front ones are just guides for the bedways.
