Much like the Tecre Manual Button Maker Machine, the Electric Button Maker is also designed to require very little maintenance. The best care products for the electric button machine can be found in your home or at your local hardware store. Here is what you need, where you need to apply it, and how often.
A general rule of thumb is that the 3-in-One oil can be applied anywhere that there is visible grease on the button maker machine. Most of these areas are indicated in yellow. Depending on use, the button maker may only need lubricating about once every month.
It is important to note that only 1 drop of oil is needed. Over lubricating will get you into a slippery situation involving excessive oil inside the button maker and the inability to clean effectively.
NEVER use WD-40 inside the button making machine. Some people think that this lubricant is appropriate. Don’t be that person.
Periodically, debris and dirt should be removed from the button maker. The best practice for this removal is to first lightly vacuum the machine’s innards. This will remove any loose dust. Next, you can spray the internal organs of the button maker machine with compressed air. Yes, this is the same can of air that you use to remove Wednesday’s tuna salad sandwich from your keyboard. After spraying, lightly vacuum the insides once again before replacing the cover.
