Forgive me if I'm stating the obvious. The correct way to install crosslide and topslide leadscrews is to assemble with the endplate screws slack. Adjust the slide so that it is fully forwards so the nut and endplate are at their closest approach. Then the screws can be tightened. This ensures that the endplate bearings are concentric with the nut. Failure to do this will cause binding which will get worse as the slide is screwed in.

If thats exactly what you did then feel free to ignore me.

regards Martin
