  1. Are you kidding me? I have yet to see severe damage done to a cube through Jigaloo yet.

    Neither have I. I've used it on my store-bought twice. One time, I actually sprayed each piece and let them dry on a newspaper, and it worked amazing. I did notice some tiny warps on the interlocking part of three edge pieces though. Best lube I've ever used.

    THATS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SPRAY IT AND LEAVE IT.. SO THE LESSON LEARNED HERE IS: WORK IT IN.....
    IF YOU WORK IT IN, IT WILL DO IT'S MAGIC

    Just spray all the piece on a newspaper or something, but spray it disassembled, seriously. I tried a bit on my megaminx, it melted it. A month later, because my megaminx sucked too much, I tried again, but all disassembled and I let the Jigaloo dry before putting it back together and now it works like a dream!!

    jigaloo doesnt melt your cube every single time you put it in. depends on the amount you put in also laying out your cubies and spraying a THIN LAYER over it works very well. you just need to work it in after and i saw that video on the first page with the 4x4 glued together. that same thing happened to my main speed cube after i forgot to work it in.. i easily fixed it by using a knife.


    but the real truth about jig a loo is the fact that it has an odor that causes cancer. i think. But it just smells if you strongly inhale it. VENTILATED AREA KIDS.

    I went to the hardware store and got some stuff called KEL pure silicone to lube my cubes. best stuff ive ever used, no work in/let rest period needed. ive never used Jigaloo though. im in NC so canada isnt exactly close for me

    I spray every silicon spray at my bathroom (there's a big fan for ventilation) or on my table with my over-wear covering my nose (My english skills a little bit bad)

    BTW i still can't find JigALoo in stores. I use Penray Silicone Spray.

    LOL

    edit, sorry for breaking the rules with the "lol":


    does anybody know the effect jigalloo has on alpha v's? I heard that it will melt down the teeth that prevent popping, but I'm wondering if it will make a difference if I tighten the screws and put the jigaloo in, my main problem is that it pops too much, but if I tighten the screws, its too tight. Can I tighten my screws and put jigaloo? will it work well

    also, I put jigaloo in my rubiks 3x3 and it glided but usually would overspin. Using this on DIY's should probably work if you tighten the screws, but from lack of experience, I'm not sure yet.

    1) Jig-a-loo is available in the states
    2) do you realize how old this thread is

    this doesn't really help much and goes against the rules

    I live in pennsylvania in the US and I'm 15. They didn't card me when I bought the jig-a-loo. Good thing too because I don't think they would accept my student ID:)
