The tolerances are really tight it seems. I tried shrinking the core but then it binds because the thread doesn't match, I'm guessing. Is there any way to increase the tolerance for the core?

To follow up, resizing X and Y to ~90% seems to help. I also noticed my circles were flat on the sides which partly triggered the binding issue.

Yes, there is a way. You can scale the core down in X & Y dimensions only in your slicer. Don't touch the Z axis. Then you can have smaller cross section of the core with affecting the length and the pitch of the threads.

These have been lots of fun! What are the dimensions on the threaded hole?

Thanks, the hole is 10mm in diameter
