    I have certainly read that the shrouded fan impeller works better but it can get clogged easily. I would think a cyclone would solve that problem. Would that impleer type be an easy upgrade? Who...

    I wonder how it would work on locks like for a car. They recommend no lube at all, or dry graphite.

    It is designed to be a chain lube so it should work fine.
