I would bin that QC
That bar material that looks of dubious quality.
Will be interesting reading responses.

I think you will have to explain what you are talking about, so far it doesn't make sense.

Got it, the first time I looked, the "QC" was black and I ignored it. Now it is blue, must be magic!

Looks like the clamp let go, or loosened off, which would perhaps indicate that the cam on the clamping spindle is not going over centre enough to provide a tight fit. POS!! Glad to hear you are on the mend OuBallie!

The material looks like a piece of crap ! You could have made a sleeve to fit the top slide bolt, that should be a tight fit in the top slide any way, secured with an anti rotation pin. Carbide inserts work best when speed is in high range & doc is 0.5 at least, if not more. Inserts need to be worked hard to get best results / finish.
