HD4 maintenance question

Postby tankerzuke » Wed Jun 27, 2018 10:51 am

Hello! I have looked in several places and sites for an answer to a couple questions I have and hope someone here could help me out. I have Boeshield T-9 lubricant but don't know if it's a "dry" lubricant to use on my shark. Is this something I can use or do I need something different? How do I tell if whatever I'm looking at is a "dry" lubricant? My second question is, is there a good diagram out there of just what I need to be lubricating on my HD4 and or what I should be doing as far as routine regular maintenance?

I want to make the machine last as long as possible. Any advice or direction would be most greatly appreciated!

Hey welcome to the group.

The can should say 'dry' or 'powder' on it somewhere. I've found most (maybe all) silicone lubricants are 'dry' meaning that once the carrier evaporates there is no sticky residue left. If you are concerned, then just take a piece of scrap and spray it with your lubricant. After about 2 - 3 minutes the liquid carrier should have evaporated and the piece should be dry, slippery, but dry.
