Those are quite possibly the worst 2 options. wd-40 is a poor lubricant and household (3 in 1) will gum up over time. If you use it for food prep, mineral oil. Otherwise there are a lot of good synthetic or petroleum based lubes that work well.Mlnarik wrote:I need to oil the washers of my tenacious, i have wd-40 and household oil, which would be the best to use
WD stands for "water displacing" and its main use is as a solvent or rust dissolver. The lubricant-like properties of WD-40 come not from the substance itself, but from dissolving components. And the effect doesn't last. WD-40 can be a good substance to start with — it can help clean up rust or other grime
I've heard that the goo in a kangaroos pouch is the best lube out there. If you decide to try it, please video it for all of us to enjoy.Bloke wrote:I don't eat with folders and use NycoLube 127 on knives. I can't fault it and I've not found anything to rival it.
About six months or more ago I pulled apart my DigiCam S30V Millie and cleaned it up. I'd been playing with the drag on a fishing reel too and the little tub of Shimano Ace-2 drag grease I used was close handy so I thought I'd give it a go on the Millie's pivot and washers. So I did!
I used it most sparingly in the blades pivot hole, pin and both sides of the washes and reassembled the knife. To say it's smooth is an understatement and it's still going strong like I just lubed it.
