I didn't want to reply to myself again [might become a habit]so I started another thread.I got tired of this cheap fluid head tripod,so I disjointed the head and found that it had the glue grease in it,used nail polish remover [don't tell my wife] to clean all this crap out and relubed it with Sil-Glyde,man what a difference,smooth as silk.Set it on back porch at 35 degree F and it still worked smooth.This head has just about all plastic parts and I was just wondering if the "good" tripod heads have machined metal parts?Thanks for any information and thanks for reading this.
