I found my Dad's old tripod in the garage. It is more than 10 years old and it's still in perfect condition. The problem is that there is a weird sticky liquid all over the top of the tripod near the rotationary part.
Is it the internal part that made the tripod move smootly that blew up over time? The tripod still moves smootly tough. I would like to wash the liquid, but I don't know what it is.
Model: Veldbon D-400
The liquid is very sticky almost like glue. It's around the base.
