Corrosion X makes a nice grease for this application.

Lofrans and Lewmar suggest grease. I suggest grease. You want the cones to slip under heavy loads or the key will bend and jam.

Hello Bill,

Do you advise putting some corrosion X on the friction cones of the windlass to get a good free fall? Or is it a bad idea leading to slipping in high load circumstances. 

Thanks

Denis
