Lube Kit (OG x GH)

<< < (27/27)

Clicky switches are VERY easy to mess-up if not careful or not using the right kind of lubricant in the right places.  You can kill the click or make it very inconsistent from switch to switch.  I'd say unless you want to experiment with a sample few switches for a while and use the absolutely tiniest amounts of lubricants, it's not worth lubricating Blues.  I just did a batch of 100 Greens and spent some time experimenting, and while the end result was nice, I used tiny amounts of lube, with a lamp shining on my workspace so I could see the exactly where I placed the lubricant, glinting on the switch, and it was basically like watch repair tiny-scale work.  Thin lube would be what I'd use for Clicky switches.
