    Does anyone one if I should be greasing parts on my Neos 1500 other than the clamp hinges? The manual only mentions lubricating the clamps, but it seems that there are probably other metal on metal parts that could use some grease. Also, I have a can of Tri-Flow liquid Telflon that I have used for the clamps. Do you think that is good product to use? Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it!

    keep all the surfaces clean, but do not grease or oil parts that are supposed to grip. for instance do not oil or grease the rails that the swivel base clamps glide on. the bases need friction to grip the rails otherwise they will slip.
