X axis slop

I am getting about .020 slop in the carriage on the x axis. It is not from loose connector at the motor or loose screws. How does one adjust the drive nut system to take this slop out?

Could be the T-nuts are going.

Run through the tightening procedures mentioned in this thread to ensure you didn't overlook something.

If that doesn't work, the end of the thread describes procuring new T-nuts. Good luck.
