I'm having problems cutting a straight dowel on my cuesmith midsize. The dowel is 30" long and just under 1" in diameter. The ends are within .004" which I'm fine with, its the center that's got me confused. It's almost .030" smaller in the middle. I'm applying very minimal pressure on my tail stock, slowest speed on my lathe and 6 on the power feed. The finish of the cut is clean and smooth but can't figure out why it's cutting so small in the middle. Anyone have any thoughts.
