Thanks, this is helpful information. I have been mostly using the CLP Break Free to lubricate the rails on my Gamma (baby) 8800. More recently, I've found that the stuff isn't working as well as I used to remember it working. But last night, I took a second look at the directions on the bottle and noted that it said "shake well before use." I hadn't been doing this. It also recommend for best results to let it cure 24 hours. So I shook it well and applied liberally last night, and will see this evening if, after wiping off the excess, things are moving as smoothly as I remember in my head.
