V wheels sticking

Postby bcuervo » Mon Jan 14, 2019 4:48 pm

Has anyone else noticed difficulty with rotating their V wheels before assembling their machine? Two of my wheels spun freely but the rest were difficult to rotate by hand. The only way to get these to rotate freely is to loosen the screw holding them in place. Any compression by tightening these screws will cause the bearings in the V wheels to bind.
I told tech support about this and they promptly sent me replacements but these have the same issue.
