Width of machine query

Last question for a while I hope.
I have reassembled the lowrider and I have had a critical look at everything.

What is the recommendation for the actual width of the machine in the X axis? ie do the vertical stainless tubes that hold the X gantry up have to be fit snug against the side of the table to stop it wandering around? I reckon I have about 5mm of play , ie you can push the whole shebang across 5mm in either direction.

Should I adjust the X tubes to be about 1mm of gap between the Z tubes ie up and downs and the side of the table? Or would it be more likely to bind?


The 5mm should be fine. It isn’t supposed to ride the sides.
