line bore the holes and fit bearings (I'd use Iglidur like this **LINK** and a ground rod shaft with a flat for the grub screw.

Now I’ve seen video of the problem area ... most of the aforementioned fixes/improvements should work, but I would first try the grubscrew with nylon insert [which is surely what the manufacturer should have used]
What size is the original screw ?

I replaced the s/s pin with a grooved mild steel pin. The set screw dug in and has not moved for about ten loaves of bread. I think that's a result.

Centre punch each side of the grub screw when tightened in.

leave the Allen key in the grub screw, hold it in with a bit of tape, tighten it every Saturday morning !

Reading through this thread (and many others in this forum) reminds me of the inner dialogues I have in the middle of the night when I get a problem to solve. So many ways of skinning a cat.
There must be a lot of minds like mine in M.E..

This is interesting as I’ve started using my Artisan again regularly to mix Pizza dough. I’ll keep an eye on that pin.
