Just bought a new custom complete and as the title suggests there is a small amount of wobble/play when the wheel is on the forks and tightened properly.

Has anyone else had this problem with this hub? Is it a problem with female hubs in general?

A quick search brought up this old thread but not really any answers on there

I've had it completely apart and can't see any glaring problems with the naked eye.

Sounds like it isn't machined right. As you tighten the bolts it should push everything snug, so the spacing must be out. You could try a very thin spacer, like the profile ones, to space it out a bit more. But as it's brand new I'd contact where you bought it

Yeah that's what I was thinking.

Has anyone ever done a warranty return through Source?

Probably, the amount they sell I'm sure the odd warranty issue will pop up. At very least they'll be able to help get it sorted
