If you are experiencing any squeaking, grinding, or vibrations please check the following.

  1. Inspect the traverse motor pulley for a loose or damaged belt (vibrations).
  2. Inspect the traverse motor pulley and cam box pulley for loose keyways.
  3. Inspect the traverse guide rails and slide bearings for excessive play.
  4. Verify the guide rails are being properly lubricated by the traverse oiler system.
  5. Verify the correct weight oil was used when refilling the oiler system. (What IS the correct weight oil?)
  6. Inspect Cam box for oil (this is a sealed unit, this would indicate an external leak).
