These are "no big deal" mods but have made things a little easier "for me!" First I removed the dial indicator and compound slide screw housing off and milled both. Used 1000 grit to micro polish both mate surfaces and now no binding when turned. They both showed a lot of wear and grooving on the surfaces. Got rid of the nut on top of the QCTP and replaced it with a larger nut that didn't have that bevel at the bottom. Now the wrench doesn't fall off when you want it to stay on. I put a knurled "big dong" on the compound slide screw instead of that tiny little handle. Now I can "palm" movement quickly or use fingers for minor adjustment.
