neutral  Roald Toskedal: The dial gauge doesn't measure tilt angles... Well, actually, it can, if you measure the clearance on opposite sides and calculate the angle from the difference. I think this has to do with the alignment of separate units, not the backlash.

-> Who's measuring tilt angles? Looks like backlash in gear wheels from the text shown
