> I would like to know from others in the Tower Talk group how they apply
Prelube to their crank up tower cables.
The last time I treated the cables I think only 50% made it in the cable,
Any easy way to do this without getting PreLUbe all over the place ?
I would suggest one of those little red spray can rods that fits into
the nozzle - you probably have a few in the garage. That works great. It
still isn't an exact science but more will get onto the cables.
One TowerTalkian made a little V-shaped backsplash out of some spare
brass. He held it behind the cable when he was spraying.
I prefer the little red rod but if I don't have one I'll just spray it
on very close to the cables. Yes, there's going to be over-spray but it'll
all wash away in the first rain.
Spray the PreLube on the cable and let it soak in and run down the
cable. That way it'll be thoroughly lubricated. Don't forget the cable on the
TowerTalk mailing list
