I hope someone can help?
I have two Rank Aldis 16mm projectors, can you tell me what to fill the reservoir up with. I`ve tried engine oil but it is to thin, at the moment I`m using Carlube Silicone multi purpose grease, Im not sure if this is right, any Ideas.
Many Thanks,

James Wilson

The Rank Aldis is a badged Bauer P6. Perhaps a Bauer owner could answer your question.

Hello James,
answer had been given - on 12. March - to your first asking.
Bauer approved that special white grease, only!
It is very soft, so that felt can get a certain ammount of oil out of grease. Never use oil to top up reservoir.
Grease and oil is sold by us, if required.
