    I suggest using a bit of teflon shrink wrap tubing on the shaft to take up the play and provide a dry lubricant. That would probably be a cheap and easy fix.

    The best way I know to keep a glue up from warping is to glue in cross grain boards on the back of your piece. It doesn't take much thickness to stop warping. If you can cover the back of your piece...

    Well, I suggest you stick with your "Done with Vectric" attitude and see just how far that gets you. Good luck pal. You're going to need it.

    Richard,

    I suggest you do the following:

    1. Drop the attitude. It's absolutely sabotaging your ability to get a simple thing done.

    Great!

    As to your comment about the sander, you can easily get your indexer to spin by just doing a MB 36000 to get it to spin 100 times, then MB 0 to spin it backwards to zero.

    And... don't waste your money on some no name brand tap. Most likely, it will crack within two turns in steel. Get a Hanson tap. They seem to hold up well.

    You could manually edit the tool path file and add a pause in the stream every hour or so. If you have one of those non-contact infrared thermometers, check the temperature.
