    It's been a few years since I've done this so I don't recall just how far off they were.

    The dimension that seems to be off and hardest to rectify is parallel. I measured at the lower tree between the two tubes and then at the bottom. They weren't off by much - but the object was to be perfectly parallel and they weren't. I think the difference might have been an eighth or sixteenth of an inch. It wasn't anything to keep the forks from working; just not like they're supposed to.

    Well, my tubes appear to be straight. Good start. Still need to get a piece of plate glass.

    You better think about that, and decide if that is what you meant to say. I think you may have misunderstood him?
