Hi all;

The good old standby Radio shack grease with Teflonis no longer sold by them.

Any suggestions on what to use?

I've got to do a repack of the trunions and thrust bearings on my 3A arm.

Oil is not thick enough, got to be a medium thick grease of some sort.

Thanks.

Most hardware stores sell teflon grease. You can also order it online from places like mcmaster.

Hi all;

I was hoping to narrow down the ordering possiblities from McMaster. Will just check hardware store first.

I have looked at McMaster and they have 5 different criteria and 8 different other variables which I didn't want to wade through.

I was hoping someone just knew a name and a stuff.

(They know me at the McMaster pick up window.)

You know, when SteadicamForum.com is the first google search result for "lisigav" I'm wondering if an intervention is in order :D
