I still think it could be a clogging issue. Repeat the advice until it works. If it does not, keep reading. It could be the paper or ink. Some inks doesn't flow as well as others, and many kinds of paper can lead to skipping, due to the paper not turning the ball properly.

Great looking Buckinghams. Are they a recent purchase? I'm trying to locate a pair but have had no luck so far.
Try the Pate de Luxe polish in "acajou" (mahogany).
Gaziano & Girling Nice
