DLX Pin Problem

Having an issue with my DLX. The pin that holds the roller in place is sticking really badly, to the point where I have had to use pliers to extract it. I've cleaned the pin, I've cleaned the hole (it is about .45 caliber appently....). I've tried to lube it with vegetable oil. I've tried it dry, and the darn thing just sticks horribly. Has anyone had this problem? Is there a fix?

I have no problems with my pin. Is it bent, by any chance? If it's just catching in one spot, maybe file it a bit? I would say call Retsel, but you'd have better luck just asking a random passing stranger on the street...
