    Hi All,

    Can anyone recommend a good lubricant for my plastic drag chain cable carrier ? It is used to carry the blower pipe on my laser cutter and it is obviously sticky with resin etc and tends to rise as it travels along the x axis catching against the cover and making the y axis rail crunch itself past (obviously not ideal). I have wiped it with white spirit and tried a squirt of WD40 but its not helped.

    Thanks in advance

    regards

    Dave

    WD40 is likely to make things worse, as it can make certain plastics tacky.

    I'd try some PTFE/Teflon spray.

    Thanks for your reply and I will take your advice. Think I may have to bite the bullet and take it off to give it a good wash first.
