    Gardiners clamp lever arms getting a bit stiff. I've always used a small amount of grease in the past but it seems to dry out quickly. Any suggestions? :unsure:

    When I have needed to lubricate this (which I have to admit is only very rarely) I have used a drop or two of 3-in1 oil.

    Yes Alex I think the cams have worn. Can see marks on all the clamps arms where it rubs when opened / closed.
