    I had a problem of the same sort, I was using a drain plug with a hole in the center and wasn't centered right with the the pipe, make your end pieces, Dan showed me this and helped a lot I was trying to find the magical depth numbers and I went through 20' of pipe trying to do so.

    As an experiment I just cut a pipe holder out of MDF. I wanted to see just how true it would spin. I mounted it on the rotary jig and it was not as good as I would have liked. (I have the belt off so I could spin it.) I think that this is a problem. We have to design better way to hold these pipes. I think the holder needs a fool proof centering feature. Something like a recess which fits over the drive wheel or a snug fit pin in the center. (Maybe we can also use the rotary jig itself to make it.)

    That sounds great if we could come up with something to make it more reliable. How off was your readings when you used the pipe carrier 2?
