lubing a VL

3 posts in this topic

I believe it was asked a few years ago but what can I use to lube the button where it nests inside the VL? I would like it operating as smooth as it can. I have been deluting all my Createx paints while impatiantly waiting for my compressor to arrive. What do all the pros here store the extra paints in? Something that might be airtight. I have found several containers that the water had evaporated out of and the paint had solidified in the bottom. (tells you how often I spray...:nuhuh:)

I use vaseline, works well.I keep my paints in plastic totes,My shop is climate controlled I guess it helps Ive never had em dry out on me yet. Maybe take em inside with ya guessing there in a warm shop.

A light coat of any grease will do. I use Superlube, a white synthetic bearing grease with PTFE that's also great for reels - and trailer wheel hubs :)
