Update: 9/5/2016:

When I got this machine the frame that holds the carriage rail and controls was damaged in shipping causing the carriage to become loose.and I wasn't sure what to do with it.

I found out that one of the ball bearings was missing from the carriage rail bearing race. I measured the existing one and ordered some new ball bearings. Once I replace the bearing I will post another update.
