I'm curious to know if anyone else has encountered a new, out of box or bag bent main shaft?

What is acceptable run out?

When i roll my new main shaft across a glass table I get a distinct warble, and can see both ends of the shaft aren't rolling perfectly axial.

I also found, that despite an hour or tinkering, loosening all the frame screws, different tightening sequences and such that I couldn't get the main shaft to smoothly and effortless drop through the bearing blocks.
