    Is anyone experiencing small oil drops in the print at the gear side of an LS40? These presses are leakers and we thought that the trick was to make sure that the bearer wipes were fresh but we started noticing thm again. They are nice round spots that seem to be air borne.

    Is this on all the units or one unit? Did you check all your oil seals on the oscilating rollers?

    Squatch I've had this on a L5/28 it turned out to be the plate cylinder oil seal.

    Thanks. These presses are leakers which makes it harder to trace it back. It seems like a routine wipe down is in order.
