    Hows things going with these screws? Had any luck?

    If you're still looking for oil/grease recommendations, Lee gave me a great reply recently - the short version being lithium based grease - if you look at the HIWIN greasing guide, you'll also see EP1 mentioned.

    Yes, Fred has been good to his word and sorted me out with some replacement bits including completely replacing the 1204 screws which had the slightly wonky end machining - you can't fault the guy's service, 10/10. Regarding the grease, looking at the specs Hiwin recommend, I've realised that I already have something that should do - Mobil 1, which I bought for re-packing the struts on the car.
