Best way to lube switches?
« on: Wed, 19 August 2015, 09:13:21 »
I've usually lubed my springs and switches with a small brush. On your site I see that you sell lube in a syringe.  What's the best way to lube springs and switches with this? Do you just pump it into a small dish and apply with a brush or toothpick? Do you have any tips?

Personally, I like using a small hobby paint brush for better control.

those needles with the brush tips are easily the best tools to apply lube with.
