What kind of lube do you use for your case trimmer? I usually just drip some case sizing lube on the shaft but I've noticed it gets kind of sticky. What should I use?

Just the standard rcbs that comes w/ the kit. The shaft.. not the cutting edge, isn't bright and shiny new plus the adjustment piece comes into flush contact w/ the trimmer which is where I noticed the case lube probably isn't the best. I'll probably drip some M7 or teflon grease on it and see how it works. I didn't know if anyone used anything in particular.

Those 3 are all basically the same, but its the trim pro minus the pro attachemnt aka quick case holder. A shaft that spins in w/ a stopper that contacts the unit flush on the rotating side. Basically you have to flat pieces of metal in contact w/ one another.

Just give it a LIGHT coat of gun oil on all spinning and mating surfaces, this is how my trimmers are lubed. I even lightly lube the pivot point on the handle ball.

Cheers.
