Dumb question, but are you sure your spindle is square to the table both side-to-side and front-to-back? While it seems odd that it would be off enough from 90° to cause oblong holes like you're describing, it can cause that effect if it is. A quick, cheap and simple way to do that is to find a piec...

Mine never slipped, but I saw the stepper motors moving around as the lead screw turned due to the rigid connection and thought that wouldn't be good over the long term. One of my earlier mods was replacing all of my motor couplers with these, and I've never had a problem with them loosening up: htt...

I've been using Whiteside router bits for my v-carving. My go-to is their 1541 1/4" 60-degree 3-flute solid carbide bit. This one works really well for fine work. They're just under $16 on Amazon right now, but I'm sure you can get them in other places, too. I think Woodcraft carries Whiteside ...
