I've recently noticed on the Arm of my Pilot that I am getting some Squeakiness from the vertical movement. It appears to be from the Release Pin area. Though Ive heard that using Oils such as WD40 and alike on the more delicate parts of the SteadiCam are a NoNo, can one simply Oil with WD40 the release pin area? Again, Im a little uncertain that it is the release pin or the pin joint, but when I hold the pin tight it seems to stop the Squeakiness.. but that could be because I am putting pressure on that part of the rig and that affecting another area maybe?
Anyway, the pin is pretty isolated in that part of the rig so Im thinking WD40 would be appropriate?
Any thoughts, Thanks.
