    Done. Thanks Reeso.

    Btw... My raw ns flicks on and off as you twist from low to high output settings and requires a very firm twist to activate the higher output level. Other raws don't seem to have this problem. Would you happen to know the cause?

    Thanks

    Hi all,

    Nyogel 760g can be bought from Flashaholics, in the UK - http://www.flashaholics.co.uk/nyogel...0g-grease.html

    They also have Nano Lube / oil. http://www.flashaholics.co.uk/accessories/nano-oil.html either of these will be perfect for your threads.

    Lighthound ship internationally and amazingly it is quite reasonably priced, should only set you back about $4-5 for shipping.

    For copper alloys, plain old sewing machine oil is all you need, or a light lithium grease if you want a more heavily-lubricated feel. Petroleum lubricates metal better than silicone anyway. I looked into this years ago for non-flashlight-related reasons, and all the silicone products I looked at said they were intended for metal-to-nonmetal or nonmetal-to-nonmetal use only.
