hello all
what do you guys like to use for the maintenance of your taping gear grease/lube/spray etc and what is least aggresive to the box rubbers,
have used wd40 before but that was a big mistake the rubbers dry out and everything in the barrel turn black and smelly not a good idea

WD is alright but i can dry your rubber wiper out after time (its fine for the metal parts) for this reason we always use either Bazooka oil http://www.belmoretools.co.uk/cgi-bin/sh000001.pl?REFPAGE=http%3a%2f%2fwww.belmoretools. co.uk%2facatalog%2fAccessories___Cleaning.html&WD=oil%20bazooka&PN=Accessories___Cleaning.html%23a4574#a4574

Or Blue Lube - http://www.belmoretools.co.uk/cgi-bin/sh000001.pl?REFPAGE=http%3a%2f%2fwww%2ebelmoretool s%2eco%2euk%2fcgi%2dbin%2fsh000001%2epl%3fREFPAGE% 3dhttp%253a%252f%252fwww%252ebelmoretools%252eco%2 52euk%252facatalog%252fAccessories___Cleaning%252e html%26WD%3doil%2520bazooka%26PN%3dAccessories___C leaning%252ehtml%2523a4574&WD=lubricant%20365&PN=Accessories___Cleaning%2ehtml%23a10165#a10165
