This works very well. Important to lube with a proper lubricant.

PreLube 6 Cable Lubricant - The premier lubricant for lubricating crank-up 
tower cables. Works great on pulleys and other moving metal parts. It stops 
squeaks, removes moisture, prevents rust and penetrates the strands of the 
cable. PreLube 6 contains rust inhibiting polymers in a penetrating oil to 
provide a thin, transparent lubricating film against corrosion. 12 oz. spray 
can. $9.50

I am looking for a lubricant for the steel cables (rope) as used on
a 72' US Tower's winch.  I have heard pros and cons on lubing these cables.
However, I understand there is a special lube made for this
purpose which avoids contaminating the cable from
dirt/foriegn material.

Does anyone know what it is called and where it may be purchased?
