you have the same machine as me. For me, those wheels are way better than the white POM ones that came with my A5.

What font were you using to perform those tests? Let me see if I can recreate it

Take it all apart.
Rebuild using a machine square or a builders square.

Do you have wobble in any of the carriages - side to side and front to back wobble?

If you have the new eleksmaker you could be having the same issue I did.  Mine was having problems from too much wheel tension.  it made things off by just a little.  I  made these adjustable tensioners to solve my problem.

Maybe the problem is too much tension, don't wobble at all but I can't loose the wheels to run fine...

These red adjusters is great! I need one kit! How I find these?

You need to 3D print them. If you have a printer, no problem, otherwise you can go to something like 3dhubs.com and get them printed usually for a decent price

yes 3dhubs is great since someone near you with a 3d printer will print it out for you.  That makes your shipping really low.  I uploaded to 3dhubs to see what the prices were and the prices around me were $5-$23

is there a big difference between the old and the new EleksMaker laser 2500mW? On banggood, they say they're sending both the new and the old, randomly, so you cannot know which one you'll get if ordering.

I haven't seen them send anything but the non-Eleks lasers (meaning they are getting them from another source).

They throw the Eleks name on everything because it sells. Eleksmaker now sells (or used to) their own lasers with blue heatsinks.

Why do you ask for a Band-Aid when it is a medical bandage?

It's China vs China on that one. Eleksmaker is trying to stop it by offering "official" gear from their site.

It's the same way with purses, sunglasses etc. you can get "name brand" from a street dealer for $20. Can't stop them all
