Y Left/Y Right Movement

Post by accrable » Sun Sep 30, 2018 10:33 pm

HI.
I am in the process of building my XXL and had a question before I move forward. I I have just finished the step where you mount the carriage on the rails. The X/Z slides along its rail very easily. The Y Left and Y right take more effort to move them along the rail. Before I start with the belts I wanted to know if this is normal or shoul all 3 slide along easily.
Thanks for any input!
