took my 3 jaw apart for cleaning today, and when it came time to reassemble, I thought i should check on my normal habit of oiling the scroll and gears etc. maybe its better dry so dirt and grit won't form an abrasive paste? Most times, a mechanism is either sealed like a gear box where the lubricant can stay clean or open, such as ways where its easy to wipe down. The inside of the chuck is a little of both.
what do you guys think, oil or dry?
