lube, grease, oil

Recommended Posts

Grease and Oil are Lubes.

A grease is really just oil with a detergent (soap) added to help it stay in place. It is much thicker than oil. Here is all the info you need about grease...

An oil is just grease without the soap. :)

Here is a bunch of reading about lubes- this link directs to synthetic lubes as they are the most relevant for this application.

Grease the gearing, oil the bearings. Less is always better. Not more than 2 drops on the bearings after cleaning them. I like yellow rocket fuel on the bearings. Any reel grease suits me.
