    Lubricating/fixing revolving cable attachments?

    Can anyone speak about their experience maintaining or refurbishing cable attachments that do not revolve smoothly?


    I just received the Ivanko RSB-34 34" straight bar cable attachment and it has a little bit of stick to it when using it for triceps press downs.

    I've sprayed the rotating collar with WD40, which has improved the spin, but it is not 100% smooth when using on my pull down setup..

    Would a little PB Blaster (penetrate) be helpful to get in there and break up any rust that may have formed inside the spinning collar?

    Input appreciated.

    3-in-1 and Tri-Flo are my go-to lubricants. Either should work. Though you may need to take it apart and clean with a brush if there is considerable rust. If you can.

    WD40 is a terrible lubricant. Try the Pblaster; it won't hurt anything. Going forward either of the aforementioned lubricants would work.

    I post a lot in firearm/hunting forums. WD40 is not a lubricant. Very few people use WD40 in a firearm. It's a water displacement chemical. 3 in 1, Tri Flo, Pblaster will all be more effective.

    Thanks all for the replies. Things loosened up a little bit lately. But I'll be applying PB Blaster shortly.
