How consistent are these jog wheels’ rotation supposed to be from unit to unit?
I still have three of out of the four I have used, and all have been a little different, with the latest unit being noticeably more resistance on minimum tension compared to the oldest unit. Is this sort of variation normal and to be expected for the SC5000? I want to say this latest unit’s jog may have also been sort of stuck when it first came out of the box, and then felt sort of dry and weird until a few rotations. Even now, at minimum tension this newest unit feels even higher resistance rotation around (or back spinning… stops sooner) than the oldest of the three in my possession when the oldest unit is up two notches on tension. Closer for sure than if the oldest unit is on minimum tension, obviously. The third unit’s minimum tension resistance is somewhere between the two of these. I believe the unit that got sent back was nearly as free spinning as the oldest one, as it was part of a pair.
Should I just not worry about it? I’m used to taking Pioneers apart and replacing those little rollers, changing the plastic gear cog setting, or stretching the springs to my liking. I presume the SC5000 is complicated enough inside that I should not be opening it up, but I’m wondering if it’s just the tension knob thing this is an extension of, or something needs lubing inside, or if this is just normal variation on the SC5000 and I’m being anal.
