As some of you may know, if you do not keep gears and cogs in moving parts lubricated the metal will grind against each other. This will erode the teeth and create play on the movements. Now I know a Tech camera is not moving as fast a bike or car parts, but would it still be best to lubricate the teeth once a year?
Also, could you lubricate the gears in gear tripod heads to extend their life?
If so, what kind of lubricant would you suggest? Would white lithium grease be best?
