Thanks Jim! Sometimes the simplest fix is the best. On re-checking, I found I’d not been quite touching the shaft when I thought it had no runout. Both shaft and flange have runout, which I re-measured at about .015 at the blade edge – quite visible when it is rotated slowly.

Trying your suggestion, I found that it took only a very very thin “shim” to be effective; after a lot of trial and error, I ended up with two thicknesses of tissue paper to bring the runout down to .003” which is satisfactory to me.
