    Better check the middle of travel too; it's quite possible (and even likely) to be loose in the middle of travel even if it's tight on both ends.

    Sounds to me like loose gibs on the compound. As you crank the handle, you're pulling the rear of the compound side to side, and loose gibs could...

    I have not, but it doesn't get used a lot. Probably only 2, maybe 3 spools of wire since it was new.

    No. You do not have to do any of that. Just take a deep bite with the knurling tool at the start, and forget about stock diameter. It does not matter...

    No, and it doesn't need to be. It only needs to be deeper than the broach cut, and the width doesn't matter.

    The pic does show it, there's a relief cut behind the broached area. It wouldn't end cleanly like that otherwise; it'd have a bunch of raised burrs.
