I wonder if there are enough people here to make it worth buying a 25L container and splitting it? I am certainly keen to get some.

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!
