I also heard aerosol sprays have unwanted additives that may affect plastics, do avoid.

That said, probably will have to test out grease, I don't think the oily silicone solution would stay in the areas for long, but at least its consistency is very thin.

Tiny bit of white lithium grease does a nice job. Just a teeny little bit.

JohZho tinkering shenans~

I took apart an analog stick casing to check out its inner workings and how to best lubricate it. Man there was a lot of desoldering to do... but I managed with the right tools. I never knew flux was KEY to getting anything smooth and not awful crumbly, so that helped a lot with getting the solder to be sucked up with the suction tool.

So! areas I learned you should lube. Straight down; there's actually a spring with plate thing rubbing around the bottom surface, if you can carefully get lube there and all the other rotating parts in the center, things will feel a decent bit smoother. Furthermore if you wanna go deeper.... if you can somehow get a lighter spring it'd be even more smooth. 

P.S.(not terribly sure if lubricants would cause problems with the potentiometers... though, wouldn't recommend it)

I see my sister's cat fairly regularly, so I'm good there. But I haven't pet a fucking dog in forever and it's an absolute travesty. I want to pet a good doggo asap. I'll even take a random stranger's doggo, which I will pet without even greeting the owner because dog interaction is more important and wholesome than human interaction in 2018.

Chiming in from Georgia. Fuck humidity. And here I thought it got hot as fuck in California. There's burning, sure, but then there's fucking suffocating.

Baltimore checking in, it's definitely the humidity. Living surrounded by water has its price.

Effin hate this weather, bad moods, bad feels every friggin day. Don't feel like doing anything.

It's pretty shit. People joke around in FL about "It's not the heat, it's the humidity" but that's so true! It's worse when you feel like the air is pushing back. Drains all your energy.
