Hi,

A quick question and appreciate your help. 

I have couple vintage eyedroppers and will be using silicon grease to make sure that they won't leak. But, I could not find any guide on how frequently I should use grease? Shall I put grease everytime I open the barrel or maybe once a year?

Thx

Yup. Hari has it. Every time you change or use more ink.
