Tri-Flow Pin Point Lubricator

About This Item

Lubes tuners, tools and hardware! A drop of Tri-Flow® is all it takes to lubricate tuning gears, tremolos, roller bridges, truss rod nuts, and more.

A luthiers favorite, this light viscosity penetrating lube contains super-slick Teflon®, plus additives to help displace old gunk and prevent corrosion. It won't congeal and attract dirt like household oils. A little lasts a long time, and the handy pinpoint metal applicator puts it right where you want it.

Supplied in 0.25-ounce size.

Apply Tri-Flow sparingly to the bearing surfaces of open-back tuning machines: a small drop at each worm gear post, and where the worm and crown gears meet. Don't overdo it! Unlike WD40® and household oils that can collect dirt (which eventually impairs tuner operation), Tri-Flow contains Teflon®, so frequent and excessive lubrication isn't necessary.

How to clean and lube dirty old guitar tuners

Dirty tuners filled with dried gunk: Dan Erlewine's working on a guitar that's been sitting untouched for over fifty years. The tuners are too stiff to use, but he gets them going again by using heat, naphtha and an injection of lubricant. He makes a nifty little tuner-holder jig, too.

Lubricating guitar tuners

This week, we're in Dan's Guitar Garage for a Tune-up Special: how to clean and lube old guitar tuners, and get them working smoothly again.

Making Golden Age Restoration Tuners work better with Triflow

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I am not particularly a fan of these tuners but builders are using them on a lot of guitars. It has been my experience that catch and do not wind smoothly. Triflow applied to where the gears intersect and then running the gears to distribute the Triflow makes for a much smoother operation of these tuners. It saved replacing the tuners on a couple of guitars.

I used the Tri-Flow Lubrication Pin on my wife's 1967 Silvertone acoustic with open tuners and it loosened up all but one, I soaked it good and will check it later to see if it has worked in.

The tube is easy to use and does not create a mess while using it.

Thank You

This oiler is easy to apply the small amount of oil needed. It will last ages with my normal use and is well worth the price.

Big blobs.

Have used similar products for weapons and fishing gear.
Was expecting smaller blobs of a thicker oil.
Hopefully this oil is specific for guitar heads.

Used to lube my 50 year old classical guitar tuners. Was able to place a dot of lube in the right place without oil running all over.

Strings, particularly wound gauges, frequently catch at the nut when doing bends or using a tremolo. If you prefer the look of a stock nut as opposed to replacing it with a roller bearing or locking variety, this lubricant is for you. Easy to apply, instant results, and although the tube is relatively small, it's enough for hundreds of applications. I recommend this for electric and acoustic guitars as well.
