Z Axis wobbles

Is it normal for the Z Axis to wobble if I move it with my hands?

I am afraid its giving my cuts a certain margin of error.

I believe its the drive rod and the bottom of the spindle mount.

I own a 1000x1000mm carve with ACME rod and 24DV Spindle.

Thanks in advance for dealing with my concern,


Make sure your eccentric nuts are tight on your adjustable v-wheels. You should not be able to wobble the z-axis side to side.

This seemed to have solved the issue.

I might have tighten them enough to see a shave of metal come out, but the loosening the nut I found it locked the wobble effect.

Thanks once again!
