Home made rotary

I have a Preneex 60w Blue China Laser with a Ruida controller.

I made my own homemade chuck style rotary. I bought this motor from Amazon to run the rotary High Torque Nema 23 CNC Stepper Motor 114mm 425oz.in/3Nm CNC Mill Lathe Router. Also have cogged belts and pulley. Used a roll pin thru the pulley instead of set screws. I did alot of test burns to get the correct Pulses per rotation. I burned 1 in squares till it was 1 x 1 on the radius of the cardboard tube.

I not sure what setting I need to change to fix this problem. I can’t get it to do a nice clean burn. It looks like it skips a line. My other Rotary setups work just fine. I am wondering if my chuck is just to heavy and may need to fill it full of holes to lighten it up.

you fitted the pulleys incorrectly, the small one belongs on the motor, the big one on the shaft.
so your translation is way too high, you need a small one.

Thank you Andres That was the problem. I am off to the races now.
