I still can not imagine the spindle itself wobbeling. Any time a tool is inserted into the spindle, the ID of the spindle must be wiped clean. The R8 tool itself must be wiped clean with a rag. I always used my t-shirt. I always cleaned out the spindle ID with my finger by sticking my finger into the spindle hole and rotating the spindle (BY HAND) to clean out any debris. If a tool was forced in that was not lined up with the internal key that could have damaged the spindle internally. Check out the inside of the spindle with a mirror and a flashlight. Any piece of anything wegded between the tool and the spindle ID will cause the tool to wobble. Again, check the spindle by itself for any runout problems.
