I have some older Matthews C-stands with the turtle legs feeling really stiff. I was going to dissassemble them and and some synthetic grease but I can't see how to do that yet. Does one custom make a 40" extension for an allen key to hold the bolt while undoing the nut?
I saw on the MSE parts drawing that the turtle base is assembled with "white" grease. Assuming that any synthetic grease will do? A quick fix was a squirt of lanocoat from the outside. C-stands are hard to get in Neuvelle Zealandia, so worth fixing.
Here is a link to the MSE parts drawing
Thanks for any ideas.
