Machine not carving well

While using two bits, the rough pass is not great. Everything seems to be working. Calibrated and level. Its as if the z axis is not responding as it should. Anyone else see this issue or have any advice?

Too much slop in your Z axis. Check your V wheel tightness on your Y rails as well. Loose wheels will cause the gantry to rotate as the bit plunges into the material and give the results you’re seeing.

Thank you. I will try this when I get home after work.

Feed maybe too high?

I tightened everything up and it worked. I will be getting lock tight tomorrow. Thank you for all the assistance.
