Squeaky Dolly Wheels
Posted 17 July 2007 - 01:34 PM
One of our guys remembers hearing about some product(like WD-40)you can spray on the track to eliminate the squeaks. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
I probably should just replace the wheels, so if you have recomendations for wheels let me know.

Pledge or end-dust will work for a while, but a time will come when the wheels are too gunked up with dirty wax, at which point you should switch to silicone spray.
I always use Baby powder but if Pledge/Endust is eventually going to gunk up the wheels,and you like
to use a spray, why not simply
start out with silicone spray rather than switching to it?

It is easy to get not very expensive and doesn't leave a mess like baby powder
I'm unsure if gunks up the wheels...but them again most grips don't repair dollies we just operate them.
I say let he rental companies worry about their dolly's wheels...and use the quick solution.
Quick solutions are usually most perferably onset even though they'll cost you later on.
It's craxy I know but that's the business.

Have you ever used silicon spray in quantity and then have to work around that dolly all day, perhaps for weeks? That's why people use Pledge.
No, I have no idea. I remember using silicon spray as a kid on a sticky winter coat zipper and some
toys and it seems to me that it was pretty strong stuff if you breathed it in. Is that what you mean?

This kind of reminds me of the petrolium-vs.-wax lube argument for mountain bike gears. White Lightning has never let me down!
