    Happy owner of a CPP-2! Now What?

    Just picked up a CPP-2 with some drums this morning for $300! (I must have built up some great KARMA!) The lift is a bit tight, can I lubricate this? I have read something about lubricating the gears. Any other maintenance I should do to the unit?

    BTW - I see free style has reels, I'm guessing that's about the best place to get them. Any other good source of Jobo parts in the US?

    joboman@aol.com, Steve Smith and his wife are great. New and used parts. I use them. Do you have the manual? You might also want to get The Rotary Processor Manual, John Tinsley, R. Morgan Publishing

    If you don't know it already, I suggest you add this page to your bookmarks:

    http://www.jobo.com/jobo_service_ana...op%20of%20page

    It also contains the manufacturer maintenance instructions.

    On the German eBay is generally possible to find Jobo parts, drums, flasks etc. so if you can deal with the foreign language and the shipping this is a place where I would have a look when I need something for my Jobo.

    The lift can be lubricated as well as the transfer gears and the rollers. I'm not sure of if there is any other regular maintenance to be performed. I guess changing the water once in a while would be good too.

    As far as parts go, joboman is a good way to go.
    B and H has some stuff listed on the website, but a lot of it is discontinued or temporarily unavailable.
    OmegaBrandess (formerly OmegaSatter) is the distributor for Jobo in the US.
    And there's always thE Bay. I've gotten a few parts there.
