If you’re interested in reading the full post about our investigation into seizing linear guides, feel free to read the full post here:


I have not had an issue. I have been wary of adding any lubricant as it might attract dust. I do blow out the guide area with compressed air.

Thats what I thought. I wouldn’t recommend to use any fluit lubricabt in a dusty area :man_shrugging:t2:
At least, I would recommend to clean up the rails after sliding the carriage multiple times over the lubricated rails.
