Cool Michael.. what brand do you like?.. some of that stuff still seems to be >$10-15 a tube..

Might be nice to have on hand as a backup, or for club use.

Hey all..

I hadn't had the need for much motor o-ring grease since moving here 7 years ago as I have mainly used CTI hardware since moving to VA.  But now getting into research and building motors again.. I'm having to stock back up.

Anyway, the Dow 111 o-ring lube that is often used in traditional motor grain assembly ain't cheap. Usually $20-30 for a 5 oz tube (on amazon). Well I just found this Pilot web site with it on clearance for under $12/tube. They still charge $5 for shipping.. but still a good deal:


Just sharing..
