It’s always black. Maybe the defective one was the purple oneI got DNM too and it was 100% black.
Wdym by base of the spring?Max Command, I recommend disassembling the hardware, and applying a tiny drop to the centre piece hole, the base of the spring, and the underside of the screw. For Silk, put a drop in the tracks and wide bits, for DNM, a drop anywhere, and Max Fleet, squeeze out a little onto anywhere. You can always add more lube, but you can’t effectively get rid of it, so one small bit at a time. You can also put Silk in the core, and Max Command on the pieces (for slowing down Max Fleet’s speed)
Fun fact, the original DNM was a dark blue/navy color, as seen in this video from Kevin Hays where he called it "The blue stuff" since it was unnamed at the time. Time stamp is 1:42It’s always black. Maybe the defective one was the purple one
Oh, you’re using a Gan X. Well, there aren’t any metal parts in the Gan X, so friction will be pretty low anyway. If you open up the centre cap, and take off the GES, there will be a hole for the core to stick through. I suggest maybe not lubing the X’s core, if you do, put some inside the GES (spring). The wide bit just means the area with the magnet on the edge, sorry for not being clear.
Ok I lubed it like this, and I'm wondering how long I should expect break-in to take. Put pretty moderate amounts of everything.For MAX Command:
Do about 2-3 solves with just the MAX Command. For MAX Fleet, just take out an edge and a corner piece, then put some on the pieces that are exposed. (Be careful, it comes out very fast!) Put the 2 pieces back in and break that in with another 2-3 solves. Then, you can put 1-3 drops of each DNM-37 and Silk in different parts of the cube without taking out any pieces. You have a fully lubed Gan X!
(I have a Gan X that I lubed the exact same way, minus the Silk, and the cube is very fast, but still controllable, and crazy quiet. I did the same thing on my Valk 2 M.)
