Kirk, on my Graziano SAG 12 there is a similar spindle head with the camlock fastening system. I made a lot of additional bolts for different chucks and faceplates so I had all the parts in my hands quite frequently. The locking inserts (nuts or what you call them) in the spindle head are excentric in the middle and symmetrical so you can fasten the camlock either way, left or right. We are used to tighten clockwise, so I prefer this. The bolts are screwed loosely into the plate into randomly cut threads and only prevented from turning by an additional 1/4" bolt, so it depends on chance just exactly how far they protrude when screwed in. (To show the desired position, they have a ring groove which is supposed to be about even with the faceplate's surface.) The excentricity of the nuts and the camlock bolts with their (weird) low pitch threads are designed as to tolerate this. Of course, there may by no means a gap between the spindle head and the plate. And when tightening, the wrench must come to a final position where no more movement is possible.
