Can anyone give an advice about how to make it EITHER easier to turn (can the turret mechanism be loosened/oiled?); OR is it possible to make the clicks more pronounced, so you know exactly how much you're winding on?
There's a o-ring that seals the bottom of the turret, these get dry and stiff with age.
You can either remove the turret and remove the lower o-ring, or remove the turret and lube up the o-ring.
