    I need some help. I have a well used old MEC 600 Jr. single stage loader. It is loading fine, but there is what I think is a lubrication problem. In order to start the down stroke from any station, one must slap down on the handle really hard. It also is making a "finger nail on the chalk board" sound on the down stroke. Any suggestions or ideas on how to remedy this?

    Clean, then lube everything that moves EXCEPT the charge bar. Then wipe off the excess. Good luck.

    I would try cleaning off all powder and other residue before adding any lube.
