Default Not accurate on stinger 1

Iím working on making turkey calls and noticed my circles are not accurate. I checked my program and they are perfect circles. The very top and bottom on the circle is correct but it gets wider going up and coming down. Whatís causing this? Is there a way to calibrate the machine? See attached photo.

Start by checking your belt tension.

Is the "Top and Bottom" in the X or Y axis?

Things like checking and adjusting tension on the belts between the motors and the pulleys is easy and generally something we all do ourselves. A loose belt is probably the most common reason for inaccurate cutting because of the resulting exacerbated backlash. If you call Camaster, the technician can talk you though this the first time...it's actually something that should be part of your regular maintenance. I check my belt tension quarterly when I do my quarterly greasing.
