No lube.  I've found that if I use only a new key for 30 days then I can 
return to the first one and alternate with no trouble.  If you would like my 
handy dandy bug adjustment paper, say so.

T-T group,

I'm assuming there are a few Vibroplex bug users  around here.   Wondering 
the pivot points of  an old "Original" (non jeweled) should be lubed, or
would that just attract  dirt or otherwise lead to problems? I see no sign 
lubrication on this  one.

I just picked up a 60 yo Original Standard and find it fun to  use after
quite a bit of practice. A problem now is that my iambic  timing seems to 
gone to hell. Wonder if I'll be able to recover  ??
