Do the insides of the L-drum need to be lubricated? If so what are folks using and where is it applied?

Thanks Matt

PK makes a tool that is used to lube the spring mechanism and it works wonderfully.

The tool PK makes is about all you will need to keep a drum running. Great item at a great price.

With all due respec to PK, I believe it is Merle (aka "The Drum Doctor") who make the tool.

I think that Merle designed the tool, but PK manufactures it (with permission) for the public.
