    I just leveled the deck up and changed the pitch on my 72" zd today.
    The deck was level from front to back...and a 1/4 " low on the left side...so i got the side to side on the same plane... then i dropped the front down 1/4lower than the back
    It cut ok with the deck level just wondering what a difference it will make now with the front lower.
    Also i made this easy to make jig...instead of measuring all the time with a tape... i cut 2 pieces of lite flat bar ...1 - 3" and 1 - 3-1/4"... and use them to measure the blade tips.
