Never use graphite
Authored by: Chas on May 23, '08 07:29:49PM

Don't ever EVER EVER use graphite to lubricate parts that are near electronics. Graphite is an electrical conductor, albeit weak and with a high resistance. You do not want graphite dust getting into electronic components, it could cause shorts or other electronic damage.
