Tuner Wax? For Stiff Tuners

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by Arizona Jones, Jan 12, 2009.

  1. I've got a Fender AV '62 Precision Bass with Vintage Reverse tuners that are a little stiff. If I remember correctly, I once saw a Dan Erlewine video were he was working on an old P bass and said he used wax on the tuners to get them to turn smoother.

    Anybody ever heard of this? If I was to try it, what type of wax would I be looking for? Any info appreciated!

    Were I to try this, I'd either use graphite (a longer lasting lube) or good old paraffin wax used for canning.
