Contamination within the ferrule bore is building up, “pushing” the ferrule to one side:  the slurry generated from polishing can accumulate in the bore or other areas of the fixture, building up to prevent the ferrule from seating at precisely 90 degrees to the polishing surface.  This can also result in large Apex Offset and Angle values.  This buildup issue is often seen in MT ferrule polishing fixtures.
