The mast is only half of your machine, the platen is spun between two bearings. Every moving part of the faceting machine is going to have some slack. The trick is to let the machine do it’s work, don’t force your cut. Use the best magnification you can afford, and just learn when to stop cutting. When your machine develops too much slack, you will have to give it a tune up. New bearings or index gears.
