Got the job done?
I would’ve preferred the fat cat lube station more but it was out of stock. I lubed my springs in bulk with the bag shake method so the spring holder was wasted space for me. Same can be said for the stem holders as I found it easier to lube the stems by holding them with tweezers, 4-prong stem holder was also out of stock. The bottom housing holders were good. Though I really only used the 3/5 inner columns to hold my switches. The two outside columns didn’t have enough space to easily clip the top housing back on when reassembling.
Does 2/3 things well
Giving this item 3 stars because only 2/3 features work really well, in my opinion - the switch housing holder and the spring holder. The stem holder is basically useless... the tolerances are not tight enough and don't create enough friction to hold the stem in place while lubing. As a result, when you go to apply lube, 9 times out of 10 the stem just comes right out of the holder. That defeats the whole purpose of using it. Would be much more useful with tighter tolerances that actually provide some friction to hold the stem in place. The switch housing holder is great... switches snap in and are held firmly. Springs aren't necessarily held in place firmly, but firm enough to where they won't pop out when applying lube ala the stem holders.
Works great and was cheap!
Was most surprised by how fast it came. Used it the day I got it. Was great!
Good, but could be better.
The concept is good, and it gets the job done, but I have a few gripes. Firstly the station can only hold 35 switches, which isn’t a huge deal, but it would be nice if it could hold more. Second the quality is sub par. The plastic is roughly cut and unpainted/unpolished. There are still guide markings on the plastic, it’s not shiny and finished like the picture. In the end it’s decent and gets the job done, however for the price I feel you should be getting more of a quality product.
Peel off that plastic
If it looks weird peel off the protective plastic first
