The other day i was playing with my pm6 and was experiencing some major drop offs. I simply had to relube the bolt but while i was taking care of business another player suggested i use vaseline in place of the dye lube i was using (yes i know dye isn't the best but its all i have right now). Im a little sceptical so my quiestion is vaseline really a legit substance to use to lube up a pm6?
I love this show

Sounds like it might be a little too thick when applied, and I don't think o-rings will really like it.

I used Vaseline on my cocker, it was ok(and the bolt was disposable) but I don't recommend it.

It's OK for an emergency bit, but I wouldn't use it on a regular basis.

You know that Vaseline is Petroleum based right? (Hence petroleum jelly)

It's not formulated to be a particularly great lubricant, but it works in a bind. Admittedly I keep a tub of the stuff in my toolbox for just such an occasion. I use it on my Trilogy semi-regularly, but just on the springs to keep them from rusting.

Well vaseline is thicker then dow 33 (dye). WGP recommends it for cockers but I believe that's because they don't want to suggest another company's product. I would imagine vaseline is o-ring friendly however since it is thicker it may clog the air ports of the bolt up.

Thats exactly what I was going to say. Petroleum based lubes swell o-rings.

Slick Honey from your local Bike shop and DOW 33 from your local hardware store are your best bets for a PM6.

Using petroleum jelly isn't that great of an idea to be using on a spoolie, specially one that enjoys eating o-rings regardless...

Is it a legitimate lube for a marker?

In short, yes. However not for yours.

Man - if it helps - I got an 06 minion and I only use Sleek. - never dye or other dow 33 products. I got cold weather dow 33 , dow 55, dye lube and almost most othe recommended. However in my personnel markers I only use SL33K lube. Sorry, but I know the difference quality lube makes and dye lube is horrible.
