bought some aerosol "slip plate" for the vertical members; where they slide
against each other. Just to test the stuff ;I sprayed the lower part of the
three bottom legs on the inside , where the 'shoes' from the next smaller
section slide. After one lowering it appears that the 'slip-plate' was
displaced or wiped off the tower in the same two vertical strips that were
made from the next smaller section's 'shoes' before. So my question
becomes, does the lubrication wipe off after each tower raising? And if so
is it worth the effort to coat/spray the inner and outer section if there
is no residual effect ????? I would think there must be something that
will survive the passing of the section. While the tower plumbs straight,
one inner section does tend to lean on one of the legs more than the other
two. Could this be part of the problem?
I do want to finish the lube while it's going to be 90 outside..
