I have recently lucked onto a Challenge 15MP that is lightly used and been stored in a dry building for 40 years. It has some light surface rust but nothing that fine steel wool can’t take care of. Everything moves and ball bearings seem to be fine.
Here’s my question: can I adequately clean and oil this press without removing/disassembling the carriage? I’m in the process of removing all covers and cleaning and oiling everything I can reach, but it’s hard to get into the space between the impression cylinder and the frame of the carriage. Any suggestions?
