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.

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 ??
PS Is there a list/reflector more suited a discussion
such as this?
