I could be mistaken, but I would say your dining room table and your floor are the weak points in the equation of your method.
That definitely occurred to me--I started by removing the rings and scope and using a carpenter's level leveled the receiver (a good check that linestretcher mentioned--going the extra mile to bed his rail-- I did not do). I think building a "true station" with a rigid vice hold is in my future--just torquing screws tended to throw things out of true--especially the bubble levels. The bubble levels I bought pretty much suck--under recoil from my heavier recoiling rifles they do strange things like "split bubble mitosis."
