For those of us who do not have lots of gear and are not constantly
lubricating adjustment screws or mechanical linkages, can you suggest a
reasonable alternative to Constant GLY 2100? The Kl├╝ber website seems to
indicate that it's only sold in 25 liter pails, which at our level of usage
would last a couple dozen lifetimes (approximately)...

We have a machine with a stiff azimuth adjustment, so I'm curious.
