I have seen where the toolholder pivots on the piston. I was getting some chatter and took a closer look and the toolholder was rocking side to side. I suspect that since the wedge is holding across the entire toolholder and not just one central point, that it would reduce or minimize this.
BTW, get more toolholders. It's not quick change if you have to keep changing the bits in the holder.
Get the combo boring/turning holders. Only cost about $1 more and can take either round or square tools.
A better way to Internet
