Dennis. See below. Don’t use the Corrosion X oil, use this instead if you want the thick lubricity of a grease and the corrosion protection of Corrosion X. It’s worked great for us.

Thanks I will start by applying some Corrosion X on one of the two cones to see if the slipping is not happening under medium load.

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.
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.
