    Most likely worn ball screws, you can try doing it at a different position on the travel, if it is mechanical backlash it is the ball screws (may be better in a different location) or thrust bearings (same in diff loc) ,not uncommon on a machine that old.

    The machine does have (ball screw) pitch error compensation but the error may be to large to comp out and you would need to hire a service engineer to either laser or ball-bar test to calculate.

    So you are saying it is possible for the machine to machine the same shape differently from one location to the other on the table? So if I have an old one like this then maybe I should try to use the other side of the table than what I usually use to avoid this? Or once the ball screws are worn out the machine will machine that way period? Just verifying so in case this occurs to me later on.
