Ultimaker 2: z-axis lubricant

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2: z-axis lubricant

Hi

I managed to lose the little grease packet that came with my Ultimaker2. After a year of use, I want to grease the z-axis.

Any thoughts on a suitable substitute for the official "Magnalube-G"? Is lithium grease okay?

BTW Just talking z-axis here. I understand that x and y axes need "sewing machine" oil.

Thx for any help

Neil

I don't think it matters that much what lube you use. You might want to check if it corrodes the axis before fully applying it.

I see you are in Canada, and amazon.ca doesn't seem to have it. I'm pretty sure Amazon US will ship to Toronto, though. If not, PM me, i can order one for you and send it over, but the postage will probably be way more than the cost of the lube!
