Two days ago we still had 10 degrees Celsius and rain. Sunday saw 24 degrees and sun. So what better to do than cleaning the Spiderbeam pole. WD40 sure made it shine again.
I hate WD40 it looks good and is good for about
3 days, then it gums up and turns to crap..
lots og guys swear by it, but on guns if left for a long period
of time it gums up and locks up and you have to do a complete
tear down in solvent to get things back to order.
If you are going to only have it on the antenna for a short period of
time or just use it to clean up and then make sure it is cleaned off
fine, then lube with a silacone they ok, but if you intend to leave it
up with that one it, you are in for trouble, especially on that antenna
also the conductance deterioates…
use some antenna specific lube. If shine is all you want good luck
there are lots of other products on the market that do a better, cleaner
job with no problems later. Even some Neverseize as used on bolts and nuts
for what you are doing.
I am not an expert by any means, but frome expierence, as a mechanic,gunsmith and alot of other areas, by chance and use I have found
that is just one thing you will not find in my shop.
Beside I cannot spell
WD40 and duct tape.
Repair tools for all men.
Good or not, there is not a place in the world where you can’t get WD40, together with Coca Cola for loosening those rusty bolts. Then afterwards you wash your hands with Lux soap and you have some Knorr soup for dinner. Welcome to the global village!
