    i got handlesavers for xmas. it says to lube the handle with ky jelly or linseed oil. woulnt that make it slippery????is there a way to do it with out a lube??? just looking for ways to not take out my neighbors who help me. for anyone that doesnt know handle savers are blocks of rubber that go onto a maul handle and absorb the impact of a over strike.

    thanks for the help

    Soapy water or brake parts cleaner. Both of these were trusted methods for getting motorcycle handgrips on. The brake cleaner evaporates much faster so you might need someome to spray the handle as you slide the saver into place.

    Aquanet hairspray works well too.

    BOILED (raw is a very different animal) will provide a bit of protection for the wood and dry fairly quickly due to it's chemical dryers. The raw linseed oil takes much longer to dry and has been known to go rancid.
