Default Please Advise!

Newbie here. I am trying to level my spoilboard using Mr. Martin's gracious spoilboard wizard. The result is not what I was expecting with this type of technology in regards to the visible ridges between passes. However, while ridges are visible to the naked eye, they are not discernible to the touch. Would someone please look at the picture and let me know if this is normal or is it really necessary to tram a spindle on a brand new machine?

I am using a 1.5" flat bit from US Router.

I wouldn't even give it a second thought until you can "hook a fingernail" (about .010") on them. When it becomes obvious that you need to tram your spindle, you will have found one of the many threads on how to do it.

Go cut some stuff and have fun!

Thank you Uncle Gary! (Down here in the deep south, when someone claims you as a relative......watch out. They normally want something from you, lol).

I can breath a sigh of relief and move on!

In Northern Michigan you can measure the wingspan of mosquitos, they fly in squadrons so that they can carry off deer, bear and the occasional human.

makes you wonder why they are the State Bird????

(in my best south Ga twang I can manage...)

"Awww shucks Gary.....that ain't nuttin. Why just the utter day I was down by the swamp and saw a mosquito standing flat footed takin on a full grown turkey!"

Where's Gomer Pyle when you need him???

All joking aside, worst mosquitos I have ever seen was in the Milk River Valley in Montana, late August. Never dreamed they would survive in that cold and then I heard about Alaska......

When we toured the UP last year, the mosquitoes were nothing compared to the millions of biting flies we encountered when hiking around Pictured Rock National Lakeshore. I just barely survived.
