Noisy Tuners

I upgraded the tuners on my classical and now I have a sticking noise from the rollers when tuning. Is there a lube of some kind that I can use? I don’t think any kind of oil would be appropriate as it would swell the wood in the headstock holes and make the problem worse.

Thanks for any advice!!

Graphite powder worked for me when I had a similar issue.

Yes, graphite powder works. Just scrape some off a pencil.
