    Lightbulb Laser cutting - Missing while cutting

    My machine is missing small +-0.5 to 1 mm areas whist cutting. Its is NOT at random. Each cut I do has the missing areas at exactly the same location. Also cutting shapes are not as smooth as it us to be? Its as if it makes a little lip just before it misses.

    Recently had an issue where my Y axis was stuck. Opened the motor and found the problem (A loose washer), but before that I tried a million things to find the problem and I might of changed something I am not aware of.

    The symptom is typical for misalignment of the CO2 laser beam. Last time I checked, there were three different persons that provided beam alignment procedures for Chinese made machines on instructables.com.
