I have a Chinese 6040 router which has served me well especially after I realized the lead screws were metric not imperial. Duh!
I've been using Super Lube PTFE to lubricate the ballscrews and rails. The wipers within the slides and ball-screw housings seem pretty effective since both screws and rails seem to be dry after I've run machine. Would you use something else and if so, what and why?
