Figured out my binding problem… The Horizontal bolts running thru the X rollers were too tight. I loosened them off and not it runs smoothly without binding, but not all the bearings are touching the conduit now. Should I be concerned? I tried tightening then till they just touch but it runs louder and motion is not a smooth. Does not appear to add any play to the axis though… Not sure how that is.

I do have one question… The belts on one of the rollers seems to wander when it moves. The belts are adjusted and run parallel to the rollers but yet it slides over to the sides on runs on either the retaining piece or on the roller mount.
