Slop Adjustment

No, the pigs are not complaining. (By the time I see a pig it has nothing to say.)

I mentioned that the new cross-slide drill press vise had some slop in the Y-axis motion.  There are indeed adjustments on it. 

see the shiny screws on the side? Loosen the nuts against the vise and tighten the Philips head screws.  Of course, the tradeoff is that the Y axis is a stiffer movement.  I will put some 3-in-1 oil on the contact surfaces and likely make it a little less sticky.
