    How do I lube a Bogen/Manfrotto 410 geared head?

    I have a Manfrotto 410 geared head. One of the axis is getting pretty stiff. What is the best way to lubricate this, and what should I use?

    I found this via the google, but I wouldn't mind a 2nd (or 3rd) opinion.

    Thanks!

    It's been years since I've owned one but that's how I took mine apart.
    the grease looks similar to bearing grease.
