I read about adjusting the gibs, to get a little drag, then back off. I had the wiper covers off, as I was reasembling after replacing them, and cleaning the grease out of the ways and the lead screws, etc.. The saddle gib now sticks out past the metal piece that holds the felt wipers in place on the back. The saddle moves smoothly without binding, so what is the way to get the wiper cover to fit? shorten the gib or cut a notch in the wiper holder? Or maybe I missed some detail?
