This afternoon I'm cleaning up a Sony GDM-1602 monitor. I have the case
disassembled, and have washed all but the largest pieces. The base is a
very nice rotating and tilting design. The rotation taken place because
the plastic tilting assembly rides on a flat sheet metal base. The
contact area is a circular plastic ridge that was lubed with an
clear-ish amber grease.
What kind of grease should I use to re-lube this? I want to provide
adequate lubrication between the plastic and steel, but I don't want
something that will hurt the plastic. I was thinking about using
dielectric grease, since it shouldn't harm plastic, won't melt out, and
isn't too messy. However, it's designed as a moisture barrier, not
really as a lubricant, I believe. Thoughts anyone?
