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.

Great for every day use

By

I used this to clean some old tuning machines on a Takemine Guild knock off. It worked great. Freed them up cleaned off the old gunk and kept the guitar vintage. But I also use it to oil door hinges, my manual coffee grinder and sharpen my hatchets and oil my hand saws. I also think it would be great as a gun oil. Many, many uses and the fine point applicator puts it where you need it. Great product and great supplier. So buy it!

Great for self-closing door hinges, too!

By

Verified Buyer


My apartment door hinges would creak, squeak, squeal and moan. They have holes on the upper and lower sides of the barrels to adjust spring tension, and after shooting wd40 in there and only making a mess, I figured I'd give the Tri-Flow a try. It worked wonders and was very easy to apply thanks to the needle tip. No mess and no noises!
Oh, and uh, guitars!

**** Great Product

Bought this product and used it in my car ignition and it worked Great !!! Ignition was sticky n hard for key to go in or come out.. Tried this and after 2cd application it fixed my problem.. Here in the desert of Vegas don't want to use WD-40 or any of the other oils as not good for locks as it attracts dust in locks.. Will use it sparingly as don't need a lot..Give it a try.!!! Best I have ever bought in all my 70 yr's.!! Tri-Flow is the only lock lube I will ever use now.!!!

Works great for tuners

By

Verified Buyer


The Tri-Flow Pin Point Lubricator works well for tuners . Really gets in there. Also used it on the threads of the truss rod . Flows on nicely and makes the nut now easy to turn ,

Only problem I found is the container leaks oil . I always made sure the cap was on when I put it away but found the tube was oily when I went back to it . Don't know if it's leaking from the top or if there's a crack in the tube . I used it a number of times but not enough to end up with just a 1/2" left .
I suggest you inspect the tube to be sure there are no leaks when it arrives . Otherwise it's a great help with lubrication .

Used on my 1960 Gibson EJ50's Kluson tuning gears

By

Verified Buyer


I have an old 1960 Gibson acoustic guitar my Grandfather left me. The Kluson gears were a little stiff so I watched a you tube video and stumac had a video where he took them off the guitar and first cleaned them (I used lighter fluid per his recommendation) and then applied triflow to the gears through the little hole on the back of the tuners and worked them loose. It worked very well, and definitely do not put the oil on the tuners while on the guitar.

Tight tuners

I tried graphite and a few other things but they didn't work. The Pin Point Teflon lubricator worked like a charm. It immediately fixed the problem. The tuners are now like new.

It didn't help my 63 Telecaster much, the keys that needed to be freed up still need to be freed up.
