    I bought a tube at Harbor Freight years ago...highly recommended. Forgot to mention...it’s synthetic so it doesn’t gum up or break down over time.

    Ditto on the grease....

    @gotemwill - I think I met you at a party somewhere... trying to remember, long time ago...

    PBR grease here too.

    I've got a couple of tubes of that MBI Grease (Coin Machine Grease) that originally came with a new machine. The PBR Grease is a reproduction of the MBI Grease. To be honest I prefer Superlube to the MBI. Both are probably fine. I have seen MBI grease gum up, but it took decades. Jury's still out on Superlube

    Whichever you get, if used in the right proportions, one tube/jar should last forever.

    Any conventional grease such as PBR/MBI grease will eventually evaporate and gum up. I have seen this on EM pins and EM arcade machines, but this is after many many years. I agree that long term reports on Super Lube are to be determined, however, the tech sheet indicates it will last 3 to 4 times as long as conventional grease. This makes sense to me as it is synthetic and contains PTFE. Similar to why synthetic automotive oil lasts longer and requires less frequent oil changes than conventional oil.

    Best Grease?

    The first movie version, with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, of course.

    I have used both PBgrease and Superlube.

    I have found that long term, whatever they used at the factory, got hard and solidified.

    I think you’re right! You were taking to that blond chick all night! Never did shoot a round of 8 ball.
