My Masters arm makes a pinging noise when extended. Has any one else experienced this problem?

Hey Jake,
I'm in regular contact with both Phil and Louis. They have both been priceless in helping me get ready for my current gig ( a three month shoot for a mini series ). I do however like to occasionally cast a wider net to benefit from the wisdom of people from around the globe. It has been my experience since stepping into the world of steadicam, that to ask a question about it will invite many different points of view. One then needs to sieve through those views and find the one that sits easiest with your own situation.
Also, as i mentioned, phil has been most helpful with my many Masters mysteries recently, and I'm trying to avoid ringing him every five minutes with a new problem!
I may however call him soon on this one, so be warned Phil!
I've been reading your posts Jake. Most entertaining.
Keep rockin'

I have experienced a pinging. I have taken off the covers and put some lub in there, but nothing has helped. I think its back to Rob Luna for a 5 year check up for me.
