    Just starting my build. I find I can push the steel cam lock insert out of the tool plate. Seems like that should be a press fit.

    I should clarify that it's not really "loose" but it's not an interference fit, either. I have to push with both thumbs and wiggle it back and forth. I just checked the other 3 in my kit and they're all a hair tighter but I can still move them by hand.

    They should be a press fit and some were looser than expected. They can be superglued in place without issue. We did glue them all in house but some may have been missed.

    Did you use superglue in house? If so, which one? I'm buying some retaining compound, loctite 648, to make these right.
