I have tried the Neo-Lube, Pencil lead and now, my favorite:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I use the Micro Brushes for various jobs. Found that dipping the end of the Yellow Micro Brush in powdered graphite, and gently shoving the end of the micro Brush into the open jawes of the coupler and just gently twisting the stem of the Micro Brush really gives the coupler a good shot of graphite. The Yellow Micro-Brush seems to be the best size for this job.
If you hold the coupler by the shank end with the coupler jaws upright, then flex the movable jaw a few times, the graphite seems to go down into the coupler, quite well. When you are thru with this excercise, just tip the coupler so the jaws are down and tap it gently on the Graphite container. The excess will drop out, and you have a well lubricated coupler.
Hope this helps.
