Can I use Stinger Oil on my Keyboard switches

Hey everyone,

 

I'm interested in lubing my keyboard switches and from my own testing (Only putting a little bit of oil on the ESC and Space key) 

is the Stinger Oil that they usually put on sewing machines.

 

So far from my own testing it works well but I'm sure of the long term affects of the oil on my switches

sowing machine oil is just a very thin oil, there's nothing about it that's specificly 'for' sowing machines.

 

as for the long term affect.. sowing machine oil is just gonna settle down to the bottom of whatever it is sitting on over time, and like most oils it's horrid to clean up.

You'd want to more intentionally use it by disassembling the switch and using a brush. You might drown the poor things. But as long as it doesn't interact poorly with plastics I don't see why you couldn't use it.
