      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Nexus Wind Transducer - sluggish pivot...

Recommended Posts

Can anyone advise me how I might lubricate the pivot for my classic wind transducer? It's about 7 years old and lives in the great lakes (fresh water).

In real light winds, she tends to sluggishly pivot and will tend to stay at a wind angle. I was thinking of spraying a touch of MacLube or... Up into the housing but I'm concerned that it might leave a residue on sensitive electrical contacts. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

 

T-9 seems to leave a non-conductive coating and I'm concerned that any coating might inhibit electrical contacts. Does anyone know what the factory recommends?

 

btw, sorry for the cross post with FixIt Anarchy. Seems that I should have posted this question here in the first place...

Thanks TomTriad, that info is helpful as I haven't used T9 anywhere yet.

 

I would not use T9 as it leaves a sticky residue; it's designed as a protective coating, not a lubricant.
