I agree with the comments about run out on a wood lathe. I use a Shopsmith 5XX for a wood lathe and there is very little run out.

On the other hand, my Jet floor model drill press became a problem with run out of 0.005 -0.010”. Not too bad but had a lot quill slop that was a couple times that. I sold it for a pretty low price and bought one with much better specs and you can actually tighten the quill to reduce slop.
