Lubricate screw threads for long term protection agains sticking

Page 2 of 2  


I hate to break it to you, but if those threads rust, the oxide takes up more space over time as rust accumulates and creates a strong interference fit of sorts. Lubrication won't really help other than how much it stops corrosion.
You didn't say how much heat is involved, so there's no way to know if any chemicals might drip out, burn off, oxidize, gum up, or make things worse.
More information would help. Could something disposable by way of wire cutters (for example) be used instead? .
