Thread: Mechanical Edge Finder, should it be lubricated?
15/11/2019 19:49:46

Years ago My edge finder got sticky. I called Starrett and asked what They used to lube Them with. They said STP. Don't know the British equivalent. Did not want to buy an entire can for just a couple of drops, so I started watching the skips around car auto parts shop and found a discarded can with an ounce or two in it. Still have it, still good after about 30 years.

My eye Doctor uses clear nail polish with good results, and holds with less torque to disassemble. Could color coordinate if needed.

I have personally seen a foreign cargo jet dumping fuel when close to landing. A descending cloud about 1/2 mile long over Someones farm is kind of hard to miss.

Over here We used to have a tall building that had an outside elevator 40 stories tall. An elevator ride was free so I could afford to take a ride ( ). One time the Wifey was with Me as We approached the top. I pointed that We were above a Police Helicopter by a good bit and She just about squeezed the hand rail in half. News stated the electric cost for one ride was 1/2 $USD.
