The SP25 at our school press (Virginia Commonwealth University – Bowe House Press) is experiencing difficulty when trying to raise the grippers. We tried oiling the exterior items that are attached – the X-22516 Gripper Shaft, but this did not help. This problem began in the past two weeks, before there was no indication of a problem. Has anyone experienced such a problem, if so was there a solution? Is there an internal section that may need oiled or is this a possible problem with the foot pedal? We made a video of this, located below, but it does not really show the problem as clearly as my just stating it.
This is a revised video – hopefully showing the problem more clearly. We did already check the packing and that was not the problem.
