I probably run my belts tighter than Ryan does but I found that if they’re not fairly tight then I got a lot of oscillation in the gantry movement. I’d say that with normal finger pressure at the middle of the belt with the gantry at one end I get about 1/4″ of vertical movement in the belt. I’d say start with the belts a bit loose and then tighten with the tiewraps until you’re happy with the gantry movement.
