As some of you will remember, I bought a vintage Sears Craftsman planer. Well I'm in the middle of rebuilding it. Took it completely apart, cleaned it, sanded and painted. Bought new bearings for head and new knives. After I get some of it back together (head assembly back together.) I'm going to take apart the motor and change the bearing in it.
My question, as I go back together with it, what would be the best lubricant/grease to use on the screw that lifts the table, and the slideways of the machine. I think regular grease or oil would just attract the wood chips.
