  1. I use Liquid Wrench Super Penetrant on all my machines, and it works great. Use it on the segment, as well as the other connection points along the typebar's path. Work it in for a few minutes, moving the typebar back and forth. Let it sit for about 15 minutes. Then I blow it out with canned air. Never oil the segment. That's my advice. Good luck.

  2. Hmmm...I will have to give it another go then. I didn't move the typebar back and forth, basically just sprayed it down good and let it sit.

    I did blow it out with an air compressor...

    But yeah, I am now aware that shouldn't be oiling the segment anymore! Live and learn:)
