I've always used silicon spray but a couple of weeks ago I spotted a can of pams spray-on canola oil in the kitchen and thought there's no harm in trying it, much much better than silicon, you can even lick your box clean with this stuff.....I know what you are thinking :sneaky2:, so unless there's any longer term problems with it I'll keep using it.
Another thing I found with lubes is that lanacote is not the same as lanox, they are both lanolin based but lanacote in a spraycan collects dirt and leaves a thick tacky film on your tools and is more suited to weather protection, where lanox is more like an oily lube and not as thick and greasy.
Would be interesting to hear if anyone has had any bad experiences with there tool lube interfering with paint?
Lightly grease everything you can and wipe it all down with a clean rag .. works great on gaskets and keeps the tools ready for the next job. wont dry up and last for along time. I do this to inside of my boxes. cleanup is quicker..and the tools run smoother as well. You can tell the difference..
Almost any type of oil, soap in a pinch😒Just curious what everyone uses to lube up their tools, if at all. I personally use 3-1 oil to lube up my boxes and angle tools. Ive worked for guys that use wd-40 but I will not use it on my tools as Ive heard it eats away at the rubber and plastic parts. Ive used bazooka oil as well, just kind of exspensive and my supply store doesnt stock it.
