When I’m cutting I am getting imperfect shapes. It seems to be on pockets and inside cuts when the y-axis is moving backwards/to the back of the machine. There doesn’t seem to be as much issue on outside cuts when the y-axis is moving to the front of the machine.
I have flattened the bed and there are no signs of being poorly trammed. I have also reviewed the flatness with a makeshift guage and the spindle seems pretty straight to the bed.
There is no noticeable backlash.
There is noticeable play on the gantry—the bottom has wiggle room against the x-axis rail. I have adjusted the eccentric nuts as much as I can but there still seems to be horizontal play. Would some washers in there fix it (and fix my issue)?
Any ideas on how to troubleshoot or fix the issue are welcome
