I used to use them years ago but no more. I use air tool oil on my spindle. Put some on and the wipe it all off. Then I simply install the chuck until it bottoms out. I put the chuck key in and give it a little snugn. Then it rarely takes more than that effort to remove the chuck.
Some people say that the plastic washers create vibration where metal on metal doesn't. I didn't have any problems that I could tell but once I learned about the oil trick i quit using them.

Like John, I use oil (paraffin oil because that is what I have) on the mating surfaces, not on the threads. Putting the chuck on hand tight allows it to be removed easily, this is much more important than the use of an oil imho.

I should say I don't apply this very often. Just once in a while. What I've been doing lately is using WD-40. I know it's not a lubricant but I use it to clean my bed, the banjo, the tool rest, tailstock quill, etc. Might as well wipe down the spindle and mating surface while I'm at it. That seems to have worked well.

Thanks for the responses guys.
I like the idea of just a little lubrication in that spot vs another $3.00 thingy that I have to buy.
I always wipe down the bed with oil, so now I'll just make sure to put some on the headstock while I'm at it.
Thanks

I make my own out of wood, some folk use old milk jug plastic. If have to buy one check out local hardware store for plastic or rubber washers.

This is what I use:


Honestly though a bit of 3-in-1 oil and I'm good to go.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.
