actually I found that lubrication makes faders a lot more stiff than dry contact because light objects always moved more stiffly through liquid.

I found some excellent faders now that I can pop open and adjust all springy plates inside so they are literally gliding on air. Really chuffed.

Really nice products I will keep a lookout for some. especially the first one-every home should have it
