Sounds & looks like an internal problem.

I am wondering if the locking latch is worn down or something. I've taken her fully apart, nothing is bent, missing, loose, worn, no metal shavings, grease is very new looking .. etc.

Like I said the only way it does not wobble is if I adjust the head so the Locks w/o movement. If I 'dime' adjust it, as it should be, it wobbles.

It doesn't sound right, there is something off that is causing that ruckus, and all the wobbles. They are not supposed to be making that grinding gears noise.

If your car was acting like that, would you get it looked at, or just "dime" adjust things and hope for the best?

I don't normally drive my mixer down the freeway at 80MPH...

I would suspect there is a worn gear, and adjusting things is moving you off the worn spot. Might be time for that new worm gear.

The only way for me to get it looked at is to spend $15 (each way) for S&H to somewhere, or drive 2 hours to a certified KA service center.

I might order new locking latch stuff .. as it seems that might be worn down or something.

I had another look at the wobblyness. I think the pivot hole in the head part might be slightly worn out. I can slightly wiggle it side to side with my hand in Lock. It seems to wiggle slightly more with the head is tilted back.

Tilt head or not, it sounds like you have problems with the gearing, like it is eating itself up.

The mixer is quiet when the head is fully locked in place. I do not hear any grinding/eating of gears.

Just bite the bullet, get it looked at/serviced. Problem solved.
