Lead screw on Z

I would like to recommend adding about greasing the lead screw. I came in today listening to a dry lead screw. If I would of known about it when I read the maintenance. I would of been on top of it and it would not have went dry

For many users, greasing the lead screw never becomes necessary. In some cases grease does need to be re-applied and if you get in touch with our support team, we have small packets of lubricant we can send to you.

I always add a small amount of white silicone grease to the Z axis screw. Did this before starting the machine for the first time. Not a lot. Maybe two spots about 1/2" long MAX. about 3" apart. Do this once a year at least as you don’t want a build up which could cause other problems.
