Re: Tooth Paste Trigger Job


When I was fishing tournements and using the ABU's I did that on a regular basis. I just used the cheapest tooth paste I could find that didn't have all the extra goop in it.

The idea was to just polish the gears enough that they smoothed out the machine marks. This was so that when using the worms and crankbaits you could tell the subtle differences in a pick up.

When I started participating in distant casting tourneys, there was a whole different bucket of tricks to learn.

As for using it on firearms, I haven't tried the toothpast, but have used some straight ground pumice mixed with some light weight grease. This did smooth out the trigger and action on a couple of rough wheel guns, but it was more of a mess to clean out than I thought it was really worth.

Try jeweler's rouge with the dremel tip that looks like the polisher your dental hygienist uses*. Unless, of course, your trigger needs to prevent cavities, be it's whitest and have minty fresh breath!

*I tried using the stuff an ex-girlfriend/hygienist used, but it wouldn't completely rinse out with Listerine. Did get rid of 99.9% of all the germs and stopped any gingivitis.

Merry Christmas - it's the reason for the season.
