What happened to nose grease as the LUG approved lens mount lubricant? Wasn't it Ted that first advocated its use? Tom Schofield -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] On Behalf Of G Medina Sent: Saturday, July 23, 2005 7:47 AM To: lug Subject: [Leica] Vaseline & Leica, a good combination? Andrew Nemeth writes: "Occasionally a tiny smear of Vaseline on the detent knobs at the rear of the lens barrel cylinder will help keep the mechanism smooth and reliable for hundreds of clicks." My question is does anyone do this periodically, and how does one know when one should bring out the vaseline? I've also heard a reference to vaseline in the a Leica M book that came out recently. In the book the author was making a reference to using vaseline on the lens mount. I wonder if regular house hold vaseline is adequate? Thanks for your comments.
