With all this talk about clear coat etc I decided to inspect my pin...Have a SW Premium (NIB with about 2700 plays) with a very very small (what appears to be) clear separation near a metal ball guide. Probably from various things the point of contact on the edge of the guide, torque of the lock nut for the guide...etc...

I ran my finger over it and it feels smooth, so i just cleaned it, put a very small piece of mylar over it, and loosened and then re tightened (but only just enough) the lock nut near the guide. Should I be doing more, and is this just normal wear and tear?

Don't worry about that - that really looks like nothing IMO.
You need to expect some tiny wear at points where things are torqued down. This looks typical of that scenario.

That's what I'm thinking as well, I probably wouldn't have even noticed it had it not been for all the clear pooling talk...Mine is fine in that arena thankfully Thanks T7

Digging the scrapbook scissor cut on the mylar.
