Good day all.

At somepoint this week I am due to get my new 1605 ballscrews & ballnuts, etc.

Can someone please advice what lubrication / grease to use, and how often to reapply.

Thanks for your time.

Best Regards.

I just put a bit of oil in every so often...it tends to flush out any debris from the ballnut. Unless you're running at a particularly high speed I doubt it makes too much difference what you use.

Pretty much same has Jonathan just use light Way-oil same that I use on lathe pumped thru nut grease point and do it every other week.!! . . Not too much just enough to leave a very light film on screw after nut has passed over.
