Hi all

Sorry if this has been said but I didn't find itm

I would like to clean my gimbal and I see one should use Arri oil to lube,
Is this oil the same stuff they use to lube the camera mechanism or is it some kinda other generic oil?

high speed arri oil, you can get it at arri (it's probably some high quality sewing machine oil!). Good stuff. Lately I have been running dry and it's really slick but beats up the bearing.
