I just noticed a leak coming from the tilting hinges of my Miller fluid-head.  Looks to be grease, but it's a decent amount.  Anyone know of how to go about stopping/fixing this?  It only leaks when in operation.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

here's what I found for anyone who can use it:

 

Miller Support in NJ     (973) 857-8300miller support in NJ  

 

 

If your Miller is a Universal, it was made by someone else and marketed by Miller.  They suggested this outfit:

 

Transylvania Film & TV    (818) 763-2036  www.transfilm.com
