Taping Tools Lubricant


Hello to all hard working men,

attending this forum as a reader for a longer time but I had to register to ask you a questions now.
I've seen all threads about lubricating taping tools. So as a new product came out (WD40 - Silicon spray / doesn't harm a rubber part) is it safe now to use it?
Cause I have couple cans at home. It's not like I don't want to spend extra bucks just I don't see any further problem with that.

Thank you all for your advice.

I've been using it on my boxes for a while with no problems. Really works nice on the box wheels, no black streaks from the lubricant. https://www.wd40specialist.com/produ...one-lubricant/
