Default Re: Lubricating cables

I have had great results using white sewing machine oil, this stuff is designed to NEVER turn gummy or congeal. As infrequent as most sewing machines are used it would have to be, as many sit unused for years and years between uses! The best, quickest, and cheapest way to lube a cable, is to take the cable loose at the top. Fashion a cable oilier from a sandwich bag, by poking a small hole in the bottom, run the cable through this hole, and secure it against leaks by looping a rubber band around the cable and bag. Then you can administer your oil by using this makeshift bag/funnel...
