I would tighten those screws only very finger tight. Locking them down
doesn't really resolve the problem (of the rollers constantly going
out of adjustment) and finger tight is going to save you a lot of
The real solution to the problem is heavier (thicker) rollers. An
SP-15 (and similar sized Challenge) suffers more for the lack thereof,
a Universal I or III or SP-20 suffers less.
I've tried every possible realistic or imaginary solution to the
problem. I don't think there is one. But as inconvenient or
frustrating as it might be to constantly readjust the rollers, it is
still far easier than hand inking on an iron hand press.
