    Default Air Drill Wiggle

    How much "wiggle" is normal in an air drill?
    Just got ours installed and the drill slide feels very loose.
    Here's a video I shot to demonstrate:

    You've got some loose bolts on the track or mini vee rollers on the back of the slide block

    Thanks for the reply Gary. The track is mounted solid, but the wheels definitely wiggle a lot inside of the track. Know if there's any write up to adjust this slop?

    Nope...
    Do it the Neanderthal way: Take it apart, tight everything, adjust the rollers, and then go back to work. Takes less time to do than write the instructions. Don't forget to check or reset the drill offset(s)
