DIY vblocks

I made vblocks out of some Corian countertop material.  I chose that material because I have a lot of it in the shop, it cuts with regular wood working tools (in this case a table saw with a regular wood blade) and it is super-stable against moisture or temp changes.

To check on the accuracy of this set-up, I took these two cranks to a machine shop to get their runout measurements.  They used a Starrett dial indicator that had .0005″ increments.

The manual states runout should be .03 mm (.0012″) or less with a service limit of .08 mm (.0031″).  My indicators have .001″ increments.
