What lube to use?
Posted 17 July 2007 - 07:49 PM
When I got it home and into a bright light I found that it had been dropped. Slight ding in rim of lens. No problem with lens but the main metal platform that holds the lens and other parts was bent.
So, I disassembled and figured out a way to straighten the part.
I also cleaned the brass gears and all glass.
Surprisingly, I got it all back together and everything works. Meter Ok after new 1.35 Wein battery installed.
My question is what should I use to lube the gears? Motor runs nicely but sounds a bit dry.
I have some pictures of this little gem but they are at my office. I post a link to them later.
btw: The Kobens even had a partially used Kodak II cart left in it. Guess I'll use it up and see what was already on it.
Thanks for your help.

I've used Nyoil in Bell & Howell Filmo and Eyemo cameras for years with great results. It is available from Micro-Tools and that little bottle goes a very, very long way. Use sparingly.
Thank you, Dan.
I have never been to the Micro-Tools. Good stuff. I now have a new wish list.
