plastic vs metal washers

Do the plastic or the metal washers get rid of more friction?

The plastic teflon washers reduce more friction than a metal washer.

Yes, that is teflon’s main selling point, i.e. Teflon Coated pans, etc. For very minute spacing on joints I find the metal ones better due to their thinness.

Because I knew those things were in the post. That technique works pretty well, though sometimes you have to guess what might be in the post you’re concerned about.
