Lubrication for trade stimulators

Postby Paladin » Wed Jul 19, 2017 7:02 am

I need some help on trade stimulators lubrication. I did a search I couldn’t really find the answers. First is what products do you guys recommend? Second how often should you lubricate your trade stimulators with casual use? Third what parts of the mechanism should you lubricate?
Thanks for any help.

You can't go wrong with using 3-1 (aka sewing machine) oil for rotating parts like shafts and bearings and vaseline for sliding parts (except for any payout slides or gum chutes).

I usually lube my machines once a year, but they have very light use. The more you use them, the more frequently they should be lubed. Playing them periodically also helps keep them lubed.

The only oil I use on my slots and trade stimulators is a synthetic oil - Liquid Bearings - it is way better than 3 in 1. Google Liquid Bearings and decide for yourself.

I second that "Liquid Bearings" material. Use it exclusively on every moving part. They make oil and also grease in that blend. Won't ever harden and stays oily forever.
Slowly building a knowledge base on E2000 series Bally machines and J400 Jennings. Started with the antique Mills and Jennings. Getting there...
