    It seems like my Rockchucker is getting lots or play,slack (or whatever you want to call it) in the linkage. My JR never had any slack.The slack is from the links where they connect to the press body.Is it normal for the Rockchucker to have this looseness?I can move the handle sideways quite a bit.If you work the press and don't hold the handle straight it feels rough.Is this just something that comes with usage or does it need repair?

    You need to adjust the 2 large nuts on each side of the linkages. Tighten each one up a bit until the slop is gone but it doesn't drag. My Rockchucker was just the opposite. It was too tight and didn't function as smoothly as all the others I'd played with. I loosened those nuts a bit and it was like butter. If loosened too much it gets sloppy like you're describing.

    Dont forget to remove any primer residues and then lube it with a good oil or grease(rec. synthetics) less gumming
