Z axis screw maintenance

Anyone applying anything to Z axis screw for lube maintenance?

I apply super lube once in a while. Just a small amount, and well spread.
Be careful not to add too much, or it will concentrate around the screw’s end and with the spinning speed it will be thrown in all directions, contaminating your resin can causing printing issues.

Superlube PTFE is the ticket. Amazon has it. I usually buy it in the tubes PN: 41150
