Thanks for all the great responses. If I am measuring correctly, with nothing mounted to the spindle, I have no perceptible runnout on mine, measured on the inside of the morse taper.

I was also curious about deflection (not sure if that is the proper term). If I push on the side of the spindle with the indicator on the inside of the morse taper, I get very slight movement side to side. Don’t know if it is just the headstock itself, bearing, or the spindle moving or if is even an issue of any kind.
