Lubricating A Vac 700

Recommended Posts

Good Morning Everyone,

 

Sorry if this is covered anywhere else... I haven't found it anywhere in my searches.

 

I have a Vac 700 that is getting stiff to plunge for refills. I'm wondering where exactly I should be applying the grease that came with the pen? Do I pull out the plunger, and lubricate the shaft? Do I need to lubricate the o-ring, and if so, how do I go about doing this?

 

Thanks so much in advance,

In all seriousness, from what I keep reading about other twsbi pens, it seems I just need to lubricate the plunger seal. I'm thinking I won't do any damage by doing so, and I'll see if this solves my problem.

 

Is my logic flawed?

pretty sound logic to me ....

I guess the o ring if dried out could go hard so silicone grease is probably the best bet for it.

That's what I do with my 700.
