    As the problem has been around all the decades ,from tape decks reel-to-reel
    via cassette to VCR, I assume there is no cure other than replace with
    unobtanium parts. But in case anyone here has any insight. Not a problem of
    lack of lubrication on shaft or bearings. I suspect , perhaps only micron
    level of ripple develops on the rubbing surface, anyone know the cause for
    certain ? If that was the case then a light skim in a lathe perhaps. Is the
    squuek noise enhanced by the compression spring ? Any known , even if
    relatively shorterm fixes , not requiring taking apart
