The chain on my SP-20 seems to be getting hung up or caught on something. In the 15-second video above, you can see it catch in the beginning and then towards the end. Is one of the gears failing? I need to run several jobs this week but don’t want to risk snapping the chain.
I added a second video here. The chain is now clattering and will barely drive the main roller. When I engage the other rollers, it doesn’t have enough strength to drive the full ink train. Now I have to figure out how to clean the press up.
I’m desperate here for a press mechanic in the NY/NJ area who can come look at this today or tomorrow. Perry Tymeson, whom I usually use, is out of town for a week.
