Excellent thing to know! I’ve used Tri-Flo a lot, especiallyfor mic stand threads, but onlyknew of it in sprat cans. So you made me look, and 2oz. bottles are $4.99 at Ace Hardware.
Thanks! Can this be apropriate for my A-807? I was given a tiny bottle of machine oil with it but it seems to have dried up since I last looked…

TBH, I haven't tried Tri-Flo in this application but I use it all the time for hinges and stuff around the house. My garage door company suggested Jig-A-Loo (may be Canadian) for the bearings and tracks, but I haven't used it for as many things as Tri-Flo. Back around 1990 when I was on the Compuserve Photography Forum, several people recommended Tri-Flo for tripods and it worked great there.
