- My 9x20 has a couple of mods including a qctp and 4 bolt clamp for the top/compound slide.
I have noticed there is still a fair bit of flex under some conditions, parting being one.
The fixing bolt for the qctp is still the original skinny one but with spacers.
I will be drilling and tapping the compound to take the 14mm fixing bolt which I hope will remove a fair bit of flex, making a delrin cross slide nut to help remove the excessive backlash currently there as another must be done fix.
I'm considering making the pritkin donut as I believe this is another possible cure for flex.
Has anyone here made one of these and how does it perform?
I really like the system drawn up by multiball1 (on the yahoo group site) but dont think my current machining expertise is quite up to it yet but has anyone here made this version and if so does it live up to the designers statements?
