CLEAN THE SPINDLE TAPER
On a periodic basis, clean the spindle taper in the machine with a material like Scotch BriteTM (one of the less aggressive versions.)
Then also clean the
area past the taper where the retention system opens up, and make sure
this is free of
chips and oil. This should be done with a solvent that does not evaporate
too quickly so it will break down the varnishes that have built up.
It is sad, but true. Your system is only as good as its weakest link. Many people never suspect that beloved tool holder (you know the one that has been performing so well for all these years) as the culprit.
