Hi,
does anyone know how the LECINA SPECIAL should be lubed or cleaned?
I just opened mine, but there is no old hardened grease, everything looks perfectly clean and dry and turns smoothly.
Still, when I first tried the camera it always would get stuck after a few seconds.
I used the now old Kodak 64T, so maybe this was the problem? The same cartigge turned easily in my Nizo Professional, although it would hardly work with my Bauer A512...

In case, what kind of grease should be used?

thanks
Daniel

Might just as well be electronics. If all looks wel why change a thing. If you need/want to lube just put a drop of sewing machine oil on the toothed rims of the gears. Let it run with a cartrdige which causes no trouble. Use a Kaccema or find a few old K40s which are useless by now. :(
