    I found that most of the bolts of the backing plates on the saddle where loose or not very tight. I tightened them up and also other parts and now it sounds better. I've only made cuts in the X...

    Yes I suspected that, though I can't entirely rule out some slight misalignment of the screw despite doing my best on that front. But what to do next, adjust it again in the center? And how much...

    Yeah it took a long time, but there where some pauses in between, lots of waiting and researching.

    First test cut. Very light passes since I don't trust the setup to hold. I disassembled it soon...

    Ross those products sound worth a try at first, a new bronze gear sounds like a possible future project. You say shaped or hobbed, but to me it looks like a regular spur gear, shouldn't it be doable...

    Yes that is the long reach head. The regular vertical head is visibly shorter and has a little humpback shape to its top, this one is long and straight.

    I am not sure now, but if it's got movement, then I don't think lapping and removing more material will help. Since material cannot be added, I think a replacement bronze sleeve is required.

    Well even if the width remains the same the longer nut still has more surface area, so it'd be an improvement nonetheless. Just not as great of one.
