Question about Swarovski Optik Swarovski Tripod 2 with FH101 Fluid Head
Even with the pan lock off and adjustment screw fully unscrewed I have a periodic jerky movement when panning with the tripod head. this makes it difficult to use a spotting scope or video camera when looking at fine detail. The unit has had very little use and practically brand new (about 3 months). The problem has been since it was new
Not knowing where you reside, I don't know if a certain product is available to you but there are several different brands and some generics in the US. The original oil additive was called STP, there was a competing brand called Motor Honey (shudder) and in many auto supply houses you can find a generic sold for 'high mileage engines.' It is a refined petroleum product with a very high viscosity and is sticky in nature. If you can access the surfaces causing the problem, a dot ot two on either will probably help with the jerkiness you are having. I have used the stuff for similar gliding surfaces and the only disadvantage is the tendency to 'creep' so keeping the applied quantity low is a must.
