Hob-E-Lube Gear Lube
A tough, long-lasting, heavy-duty hobby lubricant with tack additive for anti-drip adherence. Stays put where applied. Use on small gears and linkages with high friction points. Includes extension tip for hard-to-reach areas.
0.5 fl oz (14.7 mL)
For use on:
• R/C car ball joints and large servo gears
• Model train power gears and locomotive cross heads
• Mowers, bikes, chains and overhead door rollers
We all know the benefits to be had from keeping our model railway locomotives and rolling stock lubricated: smooth running, no squeaks, less wear on the gears and bearings, and potentially more reliable pickup of power from the wheels to the motor or decoder in locomotives. In damp environments, oil can provide some protection against corrosion of metal parts.
But not everybody is aware that some oils can harm some types of paints and plastics used in model railways, and can be too heavy for use with the relatively delicate model railway gears and bearings.
This oil is especially formulated for use on moving parts that can be subject to higher levels of stress aand wear, notably the gears in model railway locomotives. What makes this oil particularly effective in such situations is the additive that ensures that it is not flung off fast rotating gear wheels.
Thus, it will remain effective for longer and in turn reduce wear on those essential components. This product can also be used on the slide bars of steam locomotives to further improve their smooth running qualities.
The bottle contains 0.5fl. Oz and is fitted with an extra fine nozzle to permit accurate application into tight spaces.
