Lubrication of small, delicate equipment
When working on cameras, laptops, and any equipment that is in need of
some lubrication, where the joint is made of plastic or aluminum, instead of using oil or petroleum based products, use instead silicon lube that is packaged in a spray can. Look for the smaller sized can because this will allow easier (or even possible) access to the area that needs the lube. You will find that the extender tube that comes with the can to be the best way to get the lube focused into the area that needs the lubrication, and not make a mess by getting it where not needed.
If you need more reach than the tube that comes with the can provides, you can extend it by using small shrink tubing. First put the can's tube into the spray nozzel, then extend it with the shrink tubing. If you do get it where not needed it will clean up without smearing and leaving a difficult film on the surface. If on a lens, use isopropy or pure alcohol, then the lens cleaner.
