Default Re: gears

Dry silicone lube is not enough lubrication for the gears. You really need something a bit more like grease. As was warned above, not too much. A "Q-Tip works well for applying it and you don't need more than a 'Q-Tip will hold. Spread it evenly over the gears.

Dry silicone has its uses but not for gear lubrication.
