The lathe is not aligned perfectly, probably nothing you can do to the lathe, I always make mine a little longer and insert the tube from the exit end and remove the excess blank from the entrance end.
I would still have a big gap between the blank and the tube. I can see down in the blank and it would require a lot of CA to fill it. I'm thinking of going to Two Ton Epoxy that I used for installing fishing rod grips. It's thick and shouldn't run like thick CA.
To err is human; To really mess it up, you need a computer.
