Creaking

My beloved Rose has developed a creak!

It's awful and sounds like a door in a really dreadful horror movie!

At first I thought it was the hinge (which is a recurring problem), but the problem didn't go away after I oiled it.

After some investigation; we discovered that the squeak is coming from the bearing in the crank assembly.

One of the ladies on the Majacraft forum on Ravelry - fleece4me - and her husband have both listened to the video below and they think there's a problem with the bearing.

So I've had to e-mail Majacraft and I daren't use the wheel until I've heard back from them!
