Default height adj lubricant ?

Hello

I have a Freud FT1700VCE V3 and I am having some problems with binding up and being hard to adjust the height where the motor goes thru the stationary base I have mounted to the table.

Can I or should I lubricate it ? I was thinking a teflon spray like we used to put on the table saws or is there a cheaper/ easyer solution ? Any advice ?

Thanks
Mike

Mike - mine was a little bit rough when I first got it but it's smoothed out now. I used a little "wet graphite" lube. It's a graphite lube in a wet spray. I spray the stuff on and usually let it set overnite then wipe down any excess. I get mine at NAPA. Seems to last a long time. I would think teflon would be OK also.
I don't recall for sure but I may have tweaked the lock adjustment a bit also.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Try a wax candle. A proper dry lubricant.

Mine did the same thing. I contacted Freud and they sent me a new kit for the adjuster. Their customer service dept. has been tops for me.

Best Regards,
