LUBE for pneumatics
Posted 20 February 2009 - 05:33 AM
When ever I see a word such as "Lube" with this group, I am wary about the possible contents to follow...

I never had any problem with turntables. I would be less inclined to do anything with those in any case, since the oil is more likely to spread to other pieces and make things dirty.
I got a lightly used 8851 Excavator a while ago, which uses the old pneumatic system, and the previous owner had put a thin layer of some oily substance on the (plastic) piston shanks. It seems to work pretty well, although I can't tell what the pistons were like before.

I know that people use graphite powder for turntables. That would get messy.
How I applied the olive oil is spray some on a paper towel then rub it onto the piston. So there is no messy excess. I would do the same on a stuck turntable.
