z axis not at 90°

Post by Lookin4help » Thu Oct 31, 2019 6:12 pm

I have an issue I just don't know how to resolve and am hoping someone might be able to help with.

My gantry and work surface are perfectly parallel. I have measured them with a digital angle finder that's accurate to .2°.

Using that same angle finder, placed against my router bit gives me a reading of 89.95°. Somehow I need to move my router .05°. I have loosened the bolts that hold the router, but there isn't any play so I can't make the correction there. There is no slop in the plate that attached the router to the gantry. I am at a loss as to how to fix this.

It sure would be nice to have some sort of an adjustment setting on the router mount to make this easier to fix.
