Cleaning a Manfrotto ballhead?

1 year 2 weeks ago #658158 by MM Images
I picked up a second hand Manfrotto ball head over the weekend and it has a noticeable gritty feeling to it when I move the ball head around.  I just ordered some compressed air on Amazon.  What else can I use to clean this?

I don't think you even need that! Just take it apart
and clean or wipe.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

That's what I do, just wipe clean and use compressed are as needed.

G'day all

And if it needs lubrication - use Graphite powder [as per your keyed locks] as it is non-sticky and the graphite crystals hang around being useful for quite some time :)

Hope this helps
