Lubrication advice for a dummies

Recommended Posts

I am an absolute mechanical clown, but read somewhere about lubrication for e61 espresso machines and bought some Molykote 111 stuff, only problem is, I don't know what to do with it. 

Can an expert please advise for a person of low intelligence.


Many thanks

I did a video on lubricating the E61, used the V for it showing how to remove cam. Check out the coffeetime Wiki

Please can anyone let me know what the plastic tips are on the ends of the adjustable spanner shown in the photo at the coffee time Wiki? I've tried googling plastic tips, ends, etc but can't see anything and I'd like to get some before taking the cam apart.

Huge thanks in advance!

I am not sure about those exact ones but my adjustable spanner came with protectors (I chose them especially).
