    Another interesting read on the topic of profiled rails.

    Some really goods installation guidelines starting around page 75, detailing the use of reference edge too.

    Great if you browse ebay :-) searching for that deal.

    Info on Hiwin lubrication

    HIWIN Grease

    From section 7 of the Hiwin lubrication manual it looks to me like you need an EP1 type grease for standard applications and EP2 for heavy duty.

    Grease cross reference chart. http://papadopoulos-sa.com/pdfs_libr...ence_Sheet.pdf

    I like the look of the SKF LGEP2 or SKF LGMT2 here for example http://simplybearings.co.uk/shop/adv...grease&x=0&y=0

    Does anyone have a recommendation for grease make/type ?

    Edit: Cheaper alternative ? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LITHIUM-EP...item1c26c58f14

    Spelling mistakes are not intentional, I only seem to see them some time after I've posted

  7. Eddy, not having any luck with either of these links?

    Sorry must be my browser being rubbish - working now. Thanks guys for putting these up.
