The rider roller is usually the first mechanical part to announce that maintenance is required. When it squeaks its appeal take care of it and everything else.

At least in this narrow vein.
But check the level!

Leveling the press is critical for preventing the weight of the carriage causing wear on the under rails and uneven impression.

The squeak may be coming from the rider and not the vibrator. Add Vaseline to the bronze journal (end).

If you’ve added Vaseline to the shaft on the opposite side of the oscillating tube, then it’s possible that the worm crescent is too close against the worm gear. See Sheet 254 of your manual.

Loosen the set screw on the operator’s side of the tube, then back out the crescent holder (on top of tube) a small amount. Make sure it does not project above the face or it will damage the form rollers. Retighten set screw.
