Which type of grease for the Z screw

Recommended Posts

I still have some Magnalube left over, but if I run out I will most likely use Synco Superlube Synthetic grease, since I have a big tube of that already.  We used it at work for lead screws and it appears to be comparable to the Magnalube grease.

The Superlube is available at UK eBay.

Thanks guys. @rowiac yes I have seen it on Ebay in th east but the ones I have seen are expensive, I just want a little 7 1/2 oz tube with free/small delivery, not a 6 pack of 6lb tins!! which I did subsequently find in the UK.

LOL just checked out the Superlube and not only is it available on Amazon UK it is what I bought last time!!

Thanks for the reminder, case closed whether it be in the garage or I buy again8)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
