Q. There is a noise coming from the top section of my Co-Ax Press. Do I need to oil the press?
A. Thank you for contacting us about the noise emanating from the top section of the Co-Ax press. I would definitely suggest you use a good quality (like Remington oil) lubricant on the guide rods* and at the pivot points of the Co-Ax. Depending on your environment it is something you may want to do every six months or so. A bit too much lubricant is usually better than not enough on machines like the Co-Ax.
*The guide rods at the point the guide block rides up and down on them, and also at the very top of the frame of the press where the guide rods come up and through.
