Does anyone else's ATG squeak pretty loud? I feel like mine has been doing it since shortly after I got it. It is ok when I first use it, but after adhering about 2-3 pieces of paper it starts to squeak pretty loud. I'm not sure if I should try to WD-40 it or something or not. But I was curious if other people's have done it. I was thinking about just getting another one with a coupon, but don't want to if it is a common thing. I was watching a YouTube video and someone was using their ATG, and it squeaked just like mine.

TIA!

I think that would annoy me. Can't wait to hear what other's say.

It's very annoying! Which is why I'm about to just break down and buy a new one!

I don't know if I'm allowed to post links here, but this is what I found. I'm going to try it out, because mine squeaks too. Not badly, but just enough to make me think "I must do something about that" and then I forget!

Mine doesn't squeak but I remember reading something about vaseline on the parts in the manual.

Mine doesn't squeak. I've had it for just about a year now I think.

I have two ATGs. One is very squeaky and one is very quiet. I keep the quiet one packed for crops and use the squeaky one here. I only use it for a second or two at a time so it doesn't bother me. I don't even notice it anymore.

I didn't get a chance to try the vaseline thing on mine, but I think I might just get another one anyway. It wouldn't hurt to have 2, right?!

I have had mine for maybe 2 years. It has never squeaked. Many of my friends at crops had them too & they didn't squeak.
