I added the extra screws to clamp on the Y axis screw but there's still too much play, so I've ordered a pair of LM3UU linear bearings (same family as the LM8UUs commonly used in 3D printers) so I can add a rail for stability on the Y axis. I may modify the X axis slide to use a linear bearing also since I believe the rail is 3mm diameter.
