Hi Guys,
Had a GT 3541 for a while now,
It is now not as smooth as it used to be, getting a little "sticky",
Now requiring more effort the "unlock" the leg sections
(thinking about all of the above, this applies to me also )

I am going to pull the legs apart, (GT3541 ) and give them a good clean and grease,

I have been thinking of using a "clear" silcone grease similiar to what is used in servicing scuba regulators or a spray silicone that electricians use,

Is the above OK or is there a better way,

Regards,
Gary

I used to have a photographic memory but never got it developed
