Some of that grain alochol lying in your cabinet or rubbing on a shoe lace does a great job. Then I used gun oil to lube the bottom of my fixed clamps.
Gun Oil good idea. Just dont google it, becuiase apprently there is some stuff called gun oil that is used for other types of "guns". Unless of course you need osme lube for something.
