i also have many refurbished HP-41C card readers. treat their worm gears with just a tiny drop of PTFE and they purr away like a charm. just make sure to thoroughly clean all working parts from previous lubricants before applying the PTFE.

Hans, can you recommend a specific product or source for the PTFE lubricant you prefer, there seem to be hundreds? Thanks.
