    Steampunk clone button trouble

    Hey all.

    Got myself a steampunk clone from fast tech and the button isn't all that smooth. Easy to use. But certainly has a metal on metal grind. In anything else I would dab some oil in and whipe away the excess or pump some graphite in there.

    Will this be safe to do? Should I try taking apart the button and smoothing everything over with some high grit sandpaper??

    Cheers

    Patty

    I tried vasoline and it worked great but only for a few days. Graphite might work just be careful not to use too much

    400 grit wet and dry paper on the offending parts and some graphite powder, don't overdo the graphite. A little bit goes a long way!
