HF Die Grinder Thrust

The output shaft on this good working cheapie HF die grinder has 1/16+ inches of thrust where the extension shaft moves in and out of an internal hex coupler (the black shaft moves in/out from chrome housing) Is this acceptable? It seems I should be able to adjust it out but so far I’ve been unsuccessful. Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Glenn F.

Correction: More like 1/8” thrust.
 
Dont want it to tight. I have had 2 HF freight die grinders for 30 years and they still work great. A straight shaft and an angle head.Use them a lot. I just keep oiling them in the air inlet every time i use them.
