I need a suggestion or two for quieting a sqeaky chair. I have tried
wd40, silicone spray, white grease...nothing lasts for longer than a
day or even a few hours. This is an office chair with springs.
Thought I would try here first unless another group is better for
this? Search for chairs came here.
Actually I did get a new replacement base from the company for free,
and I can keep getting new ones, but they all tend to sqeak after
awhile. That's four of them total! Might be just a bad model, but I
do tend to rock a lot! :)

Let's see, squeaky chair (note spelling), woodworking newsgroup.
Sure, it makes sense to ask here first.
Wrap the squeaky part with duck tape, then get a grease gun, and
pump the taped up part full of grease. If that won't fix it, the only
thing I can recommend is, try offering it some cheese.
We've got a lot of experience of not having any experience.

Then how will you be able to tell if it's rocking properly, if it
doesn't squeak? I always found a small squeak in a chair relaxing and
inspiring, when I rocked. But, maybe you're management, and don't need

WD-40 is what is making it last for a day or so.. the WD-40 is not a
lubricant, it disolves the grease thats already there and is letting the
old grease do its job... try taking off all the old grease and then use
some white grease to reapply to where the original grease was....if you
cannot get it back together then throw it out....
thats what i do when things like that happen.. try to fix it and then
out it goes if it does not work...
Well I started with white grease spray, which seems to work longer but
still ends up squeaking anyway. I only wiped the wd-40 off as best I
can. Is there a better way to clean of the chair of wd-40 type stuff?
Or should I keep using the white grease until its more permanent?
