The offset Gluehand describes is due to the way they hold the casting for machining. Either the machinist was not careful about placing the casting in the fixture, or the fixture was not designed to take casting tolerances into account to center the bore in the casting. As long as the machining was done correctly, it's just an aesthetic issue. A very bad case might have structural problems, but this is OK. I think I have an OTM 0.8, I should check mine.
