Problems with play on my Z axis

I’ve had some inconsistent results lately with the cutter climbing into the material and it was suggested I check my screws and tighten everything up. I have done all of this but noticed the right hand side of my z axis has approximately 0.5mm play. I’ve got the ecentric screw at its maximum setting so can’t get it any tighter.

Is this an acceptable value or do I need to do something else like new wheels?

Can anyone help me with my problem?

All wheels need to be tight. I would change at least the one with the maxed eccentric screw.

Cheers, new wheels fixed it.
