Sorry to hear that your balls were all seized up, is a sign of not being used often enough! Keep on working them hard and they willl shine up and need no further lubrication. Sam

I never had any trouble with my balls thank you as I liked to keep them lightly oiled! BUT our MF 168 had those lower links where the ball ends were retained by a pin, the pins themselves were notorious for getting seized . Taking them out often involved much WD40 and patience for fear of bending them / snapping them off. It was usually easier to leave the cat 2 ball ends in all the time and if I needed to use it on a cat.1 implement, just fit them with the adaptor sleeves.

Ah. So I see your new hobby is collecting lower links! Very nice! Did you ever consider something a bit??? lighter? model railways? stamps?or bar coasters? You can't use an old china cupboard for displaying these things.. not for long anyway...
oh, btw... about your jokes...yeah, like they told Jerry Seinfeld... don't quit your day job...
