    I was recommended by someone on the forum here to buy Rocol Sapphire Silicone Grease. I ordered it online, it arrived today.
    Pulled my blaster apart, applied this stuff.

    Its just too thick, and the blaster(Octo) performed badly.

    If anyone would like this grease, i will happily sell it.

    I'm surprised if this stuff works well in any blaster, if it does, then there must be a pretty damn powerful spring pushing that plunger rod.

    I appreciated the help, but it just didnt and doesnt work for me.

    I'm currently using a 3-1 silicone spray which works fantastic, but drys up after afew hours.
    Think i'll just have to lube it everytime i use it.

    Err yeah I wouldn't use that 3 in 1 stuff you get from bunnings. It will eventually erode your o ring.

    Ok, i will give it a go for sure than.

    Tell you what, i'm building a nice collection of silicone oils and sprays. They will come in handy one day i hope.

    Just noticed this stuff. But will try yours first.

    The stuff that I use doesn't actually say it's meant for rubber, o-rings etc.
    But I've been using it for a while and it's going well.
    It's $5 from bunnings in the plumbing section

    Yeah SS uses that. I put him onto it. Of course it's fine for orings it's made to be used in taps.

    Just for clarification, I used the Fix-a-Tap lube only for the plunger-to-turret seal. I currently use CRC silicone spray for the actual plunger tubes themselves.

    Silicone grease....still no luck... Crc%20mini%20spray%20808

    However, I find most sprays usually dry up when not put through general use. You will want to use a more viscous paste form of sorts to prevent drying. SAJ used this silicone paste sold in tubs in my carbon-fibre TS, though I didn't get around to finding out what the product actually was.

    Seeing as you're in Canada MIG, you may have more luck with automotive greases. I use a lithium soap-based grease by valvoline simply titled Multi-Purpose lithium Grease. It's actually designed for bearings.
    I've used it in all my guns and it works beautifully, especially in direct plungered guns. However, I find it kills reverse plungered guns a little. It is rather thick, but not so much so that it gets in the way of anything and it can still be spread quite thinly.

    Yeah Clunk it just didnt work well. I reduced the friction on the plunger till the head was nearly coming off, but still no good.

    Actually i used this silicone oil from a hobby shop, it lasts and works better than the Rocol, but still not perfect.

    Will try kingcams lube first.

    That's unfortunate. Maybe there's some inconsistency in product (shelf-life, batch etc). I bought a tube of the fix-a-tap the other day. I'll try it and let you know.

    Cheers.

    So far Fix-a-tap is the best so far.

    Much better then the Rocol, and better than the silicone oil from a hobby shop.

    Hey Kingcam, that lube you use, have you compared it to fix a tap yet?

    Will go to a pool shop tomorrow and buy that stuff.

    Yeah the sprays seem to be the best.

    The plunger rod just rockets home, Fix a tap is close, but no cigar..

    Think i might just ram a tube down the main barrel and spray lube in there everytime. Easy to lube it that way.

    Well i finally found THE silicone oil. It has been around a week since i applied it, and still perfect.

    After everything i've tried, and there has been afew, this takes the cake.

    Gives no resistance, and allowed me to increase friction slightly with no problem.

    Any chemist or Woolworths will have it in stock in one form or another, I have been using 4 Seasons brand for about a month in my daughters LSFG to make sure it dosn't dry out and I am now using it in all of my blasters.
