perhaps they used a different motor altogether but loosening up the machining standards certainly could have caused the difference.  The later ones don't run nearly as quiet and smooth as the earlier versions.

The biggest difference/impact was the move to aluminum parallel plates in 1950. They are just not as heavy, tight, & rigid as the original steel construction.
