Re: Mach1 Grease kit were? is it hiding on the site?
If I remember correctly, although I was just assisting Roland, *I* was the one who spun the axis around and tore the cable in half on the hard plastic cable guide that comes with the 1100/1600 mounts.
I also don't use the hard plastic cable guides any more either! I now have two of them that live in my spare parts bins.

It was very kind of Chris to take the blame himself in his initial post. ;^)
It was one of those dope slapping moments that can easily occur at 9,000’ elevation when the brain can become a bit fuzzy.

Yes, and I managed to break a cable on the Mauna Kea Visitor center 1100 mount doing a "regreasing" without thinking about the Dec encoder cable inside the mount. Christopher was there watching me do it, but fortunately had all the tools and soldering iron in his truck for a quick repair job.
WARNING TO ALL REGREASERS!
Consider removing any cables going through the mount before regreasing operations. If you forget and spin one of the axes more than 360 degrees, you could damage your cables.
I share this warning from personal experience!
