What I am saying is the there is that much rotational play, not vertical wobble.
There is a tiny bit of vertical movement than can be induced.
It happens with both the main blade and dough blade in the large bowl, but there is very little movement of the little blade in the mini bowl.
I suppose since all 3 blades engage the same shaft, that must indicate that the shaft and gearing is ok.
There is virtually no lateral wobble of the shaft itself when gripped with the bowl off.
What I see under closer inspection, the blades are snug until they drop to the very bottom near the bowl, and then they get the questionable freeplay swing.
It seems to work ok but it just doesn't seem right.
It is a new unit, used 3 times for veggies and once for dough, both in the big bowl.
Will have to give KA a call.
