Z not level

Post by kellord » Fri Sep 27, 2019 1:34 am

I noticed when I first assembled my shapeoko that my Z has a lot of play in it which makes it sit un level. I think that is what is causing distortion in my cuts, particularily on the upswing. Is this much play normal? I had also noticed when I assembled it, that the bottom rollers don't seem like they're tight enough up against the rail, which would account for the play. Is there a way to tighten this? I'm pretty new at this, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
