is there anythinh else i can use as lube besides the yyj stuff?
Yes, gun oil, sewing machine oil, hair clipper oil, valve oil, etc. etc. etc. will all work just fine.
i used liquid (fast evaporating) graphite. and it worked great. i used a minimal ammount and worked it in good. sleeps like a “dry” bearing but i dont have to worry bout it breaking down
thin: that disapering ink stuff u can buy at the dollar store is awesome
thick: beratta gun lube
