If I’m understanding the clamping mechanism correctly, any deviation from the nominal diameter of 4.2” will shift the router off-center by 1/2 that amount. This is based on one side of the clamp being fixed and the other side moving when clamping. So if your router measures 4.15” diameter instead of 4.2”, you’re spindle will be off-center by .025”.

If that is the case, I don’t really see any option other than to adjust the position of the clamp for the router being used. I’ll be curious what SS has to say about it. As far as loosing the factory alignment… it doesn’t sound to me like you can make it any worse.
