I actually prefer to use graphite to lubricate my lens filter threads, Oil is prone to gathering dust and grit and and potentially make things worse. Graphite - possesses excellent anti-seize properties, just by getting a 2B~6B pencil the (softer the pencil is the greater the graphite content) and running it around filter threads leaves enough graphite to keep things running smoothly.
I never thought about using a (soft) pencil as a source for graphite. Great Idea. Now I have to go find a 6B pencil.
