Hey guys, this is my first post lol

I have a Keystone 109, and it looks like one of the oiling holes is clogged; any thoughts on cleaning it out? Can I use a paper clip or something?

Are you sure the oil hole is blocked? It just may be already full. If it is indeed blocked I would first try something like a thin pipe cleaner or even a thin piece of flexible wire. If the obstruction is not too solid or too deep you might try the little brushes used to clean your teeth [Smile] Just be careful... you don't want to get anything else stuck in the channel.
