  • Product Description

    Sometimes you just need enough to get the job done.  

    Sanwa and Seimitsu joysticks make use of silicone grease to lubricate the joystick shaft's pivot cylinder.  This allows for fluid movement during play.  All joysticks come with a small amount of the grease already applied, but it can wear down over time.  

    Before now, you could purchase only the Shin-Etsu Silicone Grease (100g) tube.  For most, this was enough for several years or several hundred applications.  This was potentially overkill, and expensive depending on your intended use.  

    FA.DAB contains just that - a small dab of the same quality Shin-Etsu silicone grease that is available in the 100g tube.  This is perfect for several applications, and at a price that makes joystick maintenance a cheap affair.

    Each dab is encased in a .20 ounce vial with flip cap with label.  Applying the Shine-Etsu grease from the FA.DAB vial to your joystick is easy.  Check out the helpful video by Joey Wainright for application tips.

    1. Keeps things smooth

      Title says it all. This stuff works wonders!

    2. Great amount for a small package.

      This should last you a decade if you’re generous with it. I bought two just to be safe, but this just might last it my entire life. on Aug 11th 2019

    3. Very Great!

      This is really good for your arcade levers! Once your lever gets too finicky like it gets a bit squeaky, this is the one that will fix that. Really great for the maneuverability of the Joystick. on Aug 9th 2019

    4. More Than Enough

      Huge value considering how little you actually need per use. Used a dab of a dab for the three JLFs I did maintenance on. Perfect amount of buttery smoothness! on Jul 13th 2019

    5. Fantastic for JLF maintenance

      Sanwa JLF sticks will probably need some touching up now and then, and this grease is the way to go. My sticks feel brand new after I applied some of this to them. on Apr 23rd 2019

    6. Use this to stop any squeeking

      A little dab will do ya!! on Apr 18th 2018

    7. Deceiving product photos

      UPDATE FROM FA: Please note that content size of "dab" can vary from photos, and cannot represent the contents of every container.

      The grease does the job it's supposed to do. Only criticism I have is you will not get nearly the same size dollop as the one in the picture. I don't have a means of weighing the actual amount in my container but if it comes out to .30 ounces I don't have a right to complain but you definitely get about a quarter of gel compared to the picture. The product itself works fine.

    8. A mandatory purchase for your lever!

      People do not realize the amount of gunk and dust that can build up on the pivot and housing of their levers. The FA Dab which basically contains the industry standard of Shin Etsu G40m silicone grease in a small and cheap package, of which ensures everything is smooth as butter and that's pivotal considering the lever is the most important part of an arcade stick.

      Lubing the lever every once in 6 months or so is recommended if you play a lot. A clean and smooth pivot is a significant difference to that of a dirty, gunked up pivot that is clipping against the housing.

      Considering how affordable FA has made this available, get them! One cap is enough for up to 3 applications.

    9. Get just in case

      I modified my Sanwa joystick to add the link and well just a little bit of grease was used to have some maintenance into my Fight stick. on Apr 13th 2017

    10. Good

      This product is good on Oct 22nd 2016
