gemmer 20500 boxes

Everybody that has bought 20500 kits.

 the Rust inhibitor that is on the parts in the kit has hardened. It is still working as a rust preventative but if you use the kit you will need to clean all the parts with a solvent.. Something like wd 40, any penetrating oil oil mineral spirits.. This will include the needle bearings inside the roller. To due this take out the plastic liner and the needle pins. clean the thoroughly then use a light grease to hold them in place while reinstalling the roller screw.  I tried soaking them for a week and it did not release the pins. A bit of a pain but as with most new old stock the sealers harden up.

 the kit is still fine just takes more time to install.
