Lubrication - especially for technic sets
I recently finished building 8265 - Front Loader. I also read some of the reviews on Brickset -- especially this one:http://www.brickset.com/reviews/?ID=38245
It got me started thinking about lubrication. There is a great page on Lugnet that collates previous thought on this subject:http://www.lugnet.com/technic/lube
Clearly there was no consensus, and lubes that do work well tend to creep and/or attract dust.
So, some other judicious search phrases later I discovered that the folks that compete with rubik's cube lubricate their ABS based cubes for speed contests:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speedcubing#Lubrication
So was wondering if anyone has had a chance to try anything new for lubricating Lego parts. The Front Loader definitely has a tight set of gears that could use lubrication. I wonder if the actuators are part of the problem.
Anyways appreciate any insight you folks may have, thanks!
