GLY2100 capstan lubricant by Klueber
Revox special capstan lubricant for Studer A807, A812 and later Revox C270 tape recorders.
Lube kit - Gly2100
This kit is for later capstan motors that use sintered bronze bearings and have a red sticker as shown below. These were fitted to later machines from 1988 onwards.
This kit contains:
- 5ml special klueber constant gly2100 synthetic lubricant in 5ml dropper bottle as factory specified for later revox / studer motors. Enough for service and maintenance applications.
- 1x special applicator syringe with needle
Why 2 dispensers? We find both are very useful so that you don't waste or make a mess. The larger bottle dispenses normal type eye dropper size drops whilst the syringe fine needle dispenses micro sized drops to tight areas. Both very useful and convenient.
Please note: we only use genuine constant gly2100 lubricant made by Kleuber in germany as specified by Revox, Studer and Nagra tape machines. It is very expensive oil but a little goes a long way.
Capstan motors need lubricating every 500 hours or 6 - 12 months.
Very important tip about lubricants:
- use the correct lubricant specified
- do not mix lubricants - ever! You will damage the motor.
