    I like DuPont's krytox line. Gpl105 is a light oil, gpl 205 is a grease.

    Please don't spray WD 40 willy nilly through out the back of the copier trying to rid the machine of that mysterious squeak........all the clutches suddenly stop working.

    At least 50% of IT is a solution looking for a problem.

    Sorry Mark. I won't be able to help you find lubricants in Belgium. Have you thought about ordering off the internet? I do believe sellers in other countries ship to Belgium.

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    Been a while since it was commonplace. But every two or three weeks I always ran into the "guy who can fix anything" in the office and always insisted on using wd 40 on IBM selectrics. Might get them to work for a little bit. But it would gum the keylevers up and really really screw up all of the greased clutches. The IBM #23 grease was used as a drive grease in the cycle clutch and the shift clutches. Even more fun was when they used wd 40 on antique manual typewriters. Not a good idea. Ninety year old metal does not like penetrating "lubricants" Didn't really cause breakage, but a lot of the typebars and segments ended up with pitted metal.

    it MIGHT stop the squeaks .. but it wilL MUCK up the damn unit. It melts plastic.. it will destroy the clutches and if it drips on a board.. it will fry it. Brass bushings it will dry them out.

    So, by better stuff and when you still use WD-40, give it to your mother in law !!!

    Not saying you use wd40. Just being a little sarcastic. If it stopped the squeak, s'all good! Small price to pay to replace a few clutches and a DC controller

    Re: lube

    Maybe someone can tell me what the hell I'm supposed to use this "drysurf" on, since I have to shake the bottle once a week to separate it anyway, I might as well use it. There's a technical bulletin about it, I'm certain of that, just not certain how to find it. For having damn near all the technical information about the products available on the website, you'd think it would be easier to navigate.

    Somewhere there is a tree working hard to produce oxygen for you to live, NOW GO APOLOGIZE TO IT!
