    Try these blokes they are excellent for things like this. I can't see any on sight but I bet they will have or will get you some.

    Thanks for the info on the grease nipples guys.
    Does anyone know what is the best type of grease to use in these linear rails ?

    This is the one I use, it's the right stuff at the right price.

    First thing is, I would not recommend using the Hiwin size 15 linear bearing blocks because they are an abomination to grease. If though you do have them like I do, I found a good thread here about greasing them.
