I am at work and can't go to the site here but I know it is there because I have referred to it a lot! There is a special dial lube, of course, which is probably very scarce. Most of us use watch oil or light machine oil such as what is used for clocks and typewriters. Available in a handy needle dispenser. Should be available at your local hardware store.

Do you have a needle type dispenser to apply the oil?If not you can use a tooth pick, I have done that before I got the needle. Dip the toothpick in the oil and apply a small drop to the points that are shown in the diagram.
Quote from: AE_Collector on February 19, 2013, 01:34:40 AMI think that if the card is original it has notches in the side that lock it onto the rest of the holder so it won't move. But "aftermarket" cards probably don't have the proper notches so they are a bit of a battle to keep them lined up properly when putting the number card holder back together.
Quote from: Babybearjs on February 19, 2013, 01:28:02 AMOK, now how do you keep the number card from moving... when I had to change out the number card, after locking the holder back down, the card was crooked!
