Not rocket science people. I'm glad Jack reminded me of this recently though. Had Ron Baldwin soak himself in "White Lube" (formerly known as "Lis***v") and hump my gear. Very helpful, albeit a little funky…...

All those video tutorials were one of the deciding factors when going with PRO. Thanks Jack!

Alec, glad you use non-flammable lube -- the "after" cigarette would just not be the same while on fire

It would be fantastic if there was a list of items. That told you where to buy and where to pick them up at for routine maintenance on PRO gear. Or does that already exist?

Although you could probably get away with using carb cleaner we don't recommend it. We use a Miller-Stephenson product called Contact ReNu WITHOUT LUBRICATION!! Make sure you specify that it is without lubrication if you decide to order it. Pacific Radio in Burbank carries it and one can will last you quite a long time.
The shop uses Renolit ST-80 white lithium grease. What Jens recommended is just fine as well. I included the link of the product the shop uses but white grease is white grease. There is a guy on the forum named John Stout who has just purchased a case of this stuff and is offering the extra tubs for sale. One tub of this stuff will probably last you for your entire career.
The shop recommends using Arri oil on your gimbal and tilt bearing, but a good 3in1 oil, or light turbine oil will suffice as well. You can order the Arri oil directly through Arri in Burbank. They may even have it in stock.
Hope this is useful to you.

MAF (mass air flow sensor) cleaner is what XCS recommends, hence my recommendation...

Hey Jens, Didn't you tell me that you used that stuff to whiten your teeth, too?! A big plus is your product is half the price of the Contact ReNu. Hope you're well, buddy.
