After careful study of the Nut Sauce that I bought I have come to the conclusion that it is simply Vaseline in a syringe. Confused
It does say that it contains graphite and Teflon.
Must be small amounts if it is in there since the jell is pretty clear.
Anybody else think this is the case?
Although it is in a nifty dispenser.
Pretty expensive petroleum jelly though.

Sorry the glass is half empty on this one....

Structo, sure it TASTES the same, but I think the nut sauce is different. It doesn't smell like PJ. Laughing

Anyone know if the "Guitar Grease" that Stewmac sells is any similar to Nut Sauce?

The only difference I see is that the grease doesnt mention Teflon and doesn't come in a $12 syringe. Laughing

Today I put some Nut Sauce on a squeaky hinge on our bedroom door.
It is now quiet as a church mouse.... Very Happy

Another thing.. what's the reason for the staggered holes on the Wilkinson block?

Trying to equalize the angle at which the string bends over the saddle.
