I took a big plastic funnel and cut a lengthwise slot (about 1/4" wide) in it,
so that I
could slip it over the cable. Then I hold the bottom of the funnel against the
I've got a low leakage (OK, pretty drippy) funnel whose spout is almost
the cable. When I spray the lubricant, the overspray gets caught by the funnel
runs down onto the cable.
It saves a lot of the lube, but not all. Give it a try.
