So I need a heavier transition for a model I am building and I thought I could use my drill press to turn it. I started with a piece of basswood and drilled a 1/4" hole thru the center. I inserted a carriage bolt and locked it in place with a nut. Then I chucked it up in my drill press and rounded it out with course sand paper. Then I attempted to size the end that goes into the body tube and when I took it off the drill price to test the size I noticed the shoulder was not uniform around the shoulder. It was around 1/16th on one side and 3/32nds or so on the other. I don't understand happened. That's just not gonna work so I was hoping someone could tell me what probably went wrong.
