Help request (Loosing steps)

Hey everyone newb here. I’m having an issue while cutting, its veering to the y and then cuts randomly at the end of my board.

any help would be greatly appreciated

Looks like you are loosing steps. Check your belts and see if they are adjusted right. Make sure your dust shoe is not to tight on your work piece.

Loosing steps come from either mechanical issues like belts slipping / misaligned or router try to go past one of its extremes. Another possible factor is cutting forces exceed available torque.

Ideally we should also have info on what bit, RPM, feed rate and depth per pass in order to attempt evaluating viability of settings.
