Lubricating the sideblocks?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Lubricating the sideblocks?

This may sound really stupid to most of you, but I know to use the magna-lube on the main Z-Axis screw and the machine oil on the printhead parts that slide along the X-Y rods. But, the slideblocks, I have not seen anything about them. I have the black sideblocks.

So, lube or no lube?
