Stretched gantry wheel belt?

Hey GF!
Trying to determine if my gantry wheel belt has been stretched over time.

Unfortunately had to replace the right X Axis wheel because it had cracked.

In doing so I went to reattach the belt and extend it fully.

When attempting to do ‘gift of good measure’ I have noticed that the circles are either not circles or the design will be skidded across and not super clean.

(I can only presume that it has to do with a belt tightness issue, I hate that I even had to takeoff the X axis wheel to begin with, seems like a root of all problems for me)

Thank you for any and all help!!


Here is something to consider as you wait for support

Okay great thank you!
Just to check, if I am only noticing warping of patterns left to right and I have only messed with the x axis, it’s safe to assume that’s where the issue lies, correct?

Have you checked the wheels on the carriage plate? That engraving looks like a cracked wheel to me.

I had a cracked wheel on the right of the X Axis prior, but all of the carriage plate wheels look great.
