Z axis Lubrication

Post#1 » Fri Nov 11, 2016 8:35 pm

It looks like my Z screw could use some grease. Has anyone successfully used something easy to find locally, or should I order some ball screw grease ?

I run some of this oil down my Z screw every once in a while. I'll move the arm up and down a few times to work the oil into the nut. I bought a case of this for my milling machines and lathes at the turn of the century from my local True Value hardware store. The case will last a couple of lifetimes.
