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.

Info on Hiwin lubrication
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
