    Hi all. Does anyone ever lubricate these tuners. A couple of YouTube videos show people using vaseline and one using a combination of Vaseline mixed with a few drops of 3in1 oil, all applied very lightly. It doesn't appear that the tuners on my 2011 G5120 were ever lubed nor are they giving me any grief.....guess I'm just looking for another project, simple as it might be.

    Depends. If they’re close tolerance tuners like Waverly’s I’d leave’m well alone.
    The classic lube is a touch of white grease. Personally I’d stay away from wet lubes(like graphite fluid for bike chains etc) cause they attract dirt and accumulate grime.
