So I've been using PB blaster's dry lube with Teflon on bearings and it's been working really good. I spray them thoroughly on each side and let them sure for about 5 minutes after which I wipe them down to get the white residue off the outside and that's it. Curious if anyone else has used it? What's your method and does it make your bearings work much better?

I had a spray lube with teflon but I did not like it, it left residue and caked up.

I use TSI 321 cut with alcohol.

I've heard someone else mention it caking up. Where are you experiencing this?

I'm using tunstun desulfide dry spray lube. I make sure the part is clean and dry and it will bond to the surface.

I agree with Gobi. I tried it and hated the cakey film it left. I thought it gummed things up rather than helping.

Could it possibly be the brand?

A lubricant with polar bonding is recommended. The spray Lube doesn’t have this. CorrosionX oils and the TSI oils bond to the metal and last a long time.

Mike and Keith, there is a process of applying tungsten disulfide (WS2) powder with an air blasting gun (like a sand blaster).  It needs good prep.  Supposedly, it really adheres to the metal well though and can last for years.  But it does not adhere to itself so the excess falls away leaving a uniform 0.5 micron layer that is REALLY slick.  It has good corrosion resistance, but can also be combined with nickel powder to increase corrosion resistance.  It is impervious to acetone and most solvents (but not acids).  Regular lubricants can be applied over the WS2 without affecting it.  It's way beyond my means, but sounds interesting.

It was a major brand spray bottle, can't remember the exact name (3m maybe, I will look it up once I am back home in a couple of days). I tried it on my kids bikes, walther semi auto (in a pinch) and few other things around the house, this dried up in about a week plus and caked up. Definitely left a residue.

Gobi thanks so much for the feedback. I'll keep a lookout for that happening. I'll switch to tsi probably if I see something like what you are talking about.
