I lost the grease used to lube up the Z-axis...

I have white lithium grease laying around. Can I use that?

Thanks in advance

Yes you can use that.

The one supplied by UM is Magnalube-G which has a PTFE gelling agent which does make it a better grease long term then lithium grease which has a soap based gelling agent. You may find that you have to clean it and re-apply a bit more often as the oil can sepperate away from the soap.
