      Thanks Rich,

      Tonight I put some shim stock between the bracket on the handle
      side. I located the shim at the bottom of the bracket. It helps a
      ton! The lead screw is now more parallel to the table. When I get
      time I will measure the shim stock thickness if anyone is interested.
