Any tips here? I have a Honda trimmer, I did read the instructions
carefully and try to wind the trimmer cable tight and hold it while I
insert it into the head. But it does bind up occassionally. Can I spray
oil onto the cable to lubricate it?
This seems to help when I re-wind my trimer spool, don't put as much on as
they recomend, and re-wind the new string in the direction it comes off the
replacement spool on to your trimer spool. I am twisting the replacment
string as I wind it onto the trimer spool, seems to work better and not jam
If you can wind it on your trimer spool the way it comes off the bulk spool
it won't tangle up,or at least it hasn't for me. Before I started doing it
this way , I would have to stop and pull out line all the time. I know htis
is hard to explain, the easiet way to see what I mean is to visit a bait and
tackle shop that re-winds bait casting reels, to see how the line comes off
the bulk spool onto the reel.
Try and do a google search on how to rewind line on a bait casting fishing
reel, maybe they have some pictures.
No, it's not that wet. Just wet enough when you wind it to make it wind
flatter and it seems to 'weld' together less. I might wind it damp
today and not use it for a week, it's surely dry by then but still works

I've tried oil on the cable and it helps, but not as much as
I had hoped. I've considered hitting it with some spray from
a can of white lithium grease. It can't hurt and I'll be trying
that the next time that I have to reload the reel. I'm desperate
enough to try axle grease if necessary.
Just remember that there is always the risk of getting some
oil or grease sprayed onto nearby objects, including your
shoes, pants or legs. There is also a very small risk that
the oil or grease will attack the plastic housing or the string.
