Some types of metal self-weld, Stainless is one, gold is another.. Saw a demonstration using two tiny gold wafers that were honed flat.. touch them together and if you moved them at all, they'd instantly weld.. Now stainless takes a little more force, but it's the same idea..

Mix a little motor oil in that can and you will thank me later.

By far, the best is Prizm gel lube. It comes in a rattle can. Synthetic oil lube. Spray and bubbles, gets into the cracks. Spray once a year on my turn over ball, PTO shaft, anything. Does NOT collect dirt or sand. Excellent residual without being greasy. I buy locally. Getting harder to find online. $20 a can, lasts for a couple of years. Helps keep your sanity.
