First jog of the machine and my X gantry popped of the right Y rail. Put pressure on the lead screw because of the backlash nut. I worked hard to square the machine, but I suspect that is the issue. I am concerned about my right lead screw now being bent.
I am going to have to take the gantry off and get it back on the rails.
Here is my process I am thinking of, I welcome any advice.
I am going to unscrew all of the feet from my table.
Disconnect the lead screws from the steppers so they will be free to move by hand
Get the gantry back on
Get the wheels back in the correct tightness with the acentric nuts
With the gantry back on and the feet free to move work the gantry by hand from the front to the rear of the machine to make it can move allow the entire axis.
