    I don't know if the wheel tension right, but i have try with cordless drill and the plates moving.
    But the leadscrew is wobble. Is that because it too long? Will it affect the performance?

    I'm sorry that you haven't gotten a response. An 8mm lead screw simply can't handle a length this long. Alternatives include 10mm, 12mm, 3/8", and 1/2" lead screws.

    You might try putting some tension on the lead screw.

    If you have the length and it looks like you might, setup the screw collars so they put the screw in tension instead of compression, it does help.
    You will need to swap the plates around.
