I bought a litre of that about 2002 when I had both Stucer A807s and
A810s. I also bought the PDP65. I think I have most of each litre left.
I thought they sold tiny sample jars, too.
Anyway, at the hardware store, my current favourite is Tri-Flo. I used
to like LPS-1, but I think Tri-Flo is better for this. 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.
Hope this helps!
