Systema Cylinder Grease or Alternative

Postby Wads on Mon Dec 10, 2012 12:51 am

Does anyone know who has this in stock in the US or CA?
Also is there a compatible white grease in the event that no one has it in stock, that will work in place of this?
Thanks,
Wads

While I try to use Systema Cylinder Grease all the time I have found a superb alternative.

Tamiya Ceramic Gear Grease.

This stuff is not temerature affected (perfect for cylinders) and nice and light so offers little resistance to movement.
You just need the lightest of smears.

While it's a lttle pricy, it's still approx 1/2 the price of the Systema stuff.

Any good hobby store (that stocks Tamiya) shuld carry tubes of this stuff in stock.
Please do not ask for discount as refusal often leads to offence....!

Can you use the Tamiya stuff in the gearbox and cylinder?

He said "perfect for cylinders" so I thought just for cylinders.

I thought you needed a thick/heavy grease for the gears and a thin/light grease for the cylinder. I didn't know you're able to use the same grease on both.
