Perfect fit lidded boxes...

>I've been turning lidded boxes lately ala Raffan's book.

I've been wondering if I should wait a couple of days or even longer before making the final adjustments on the lid fitting.

I've noticed that on the lathe, and immediately after turning, my lids fit perfectly....nice suction fit. Exactly what I'm after.

Then after time, they generally loosen up a bit.

Advise?
