Haven’t done any maintenance in over a year, I just replace filament spools, then hit print again. xD

@Michael_Andresen check your rods to see if there are lines like bearing groves.

(Michael Andresen) #6

Nah, will do that in a year, if I remember.

@Nathan_Walkner yea that’s true. but my printer is located in the basement next to my washer and dryer… it’s always getting lint trapped in the threads

I just lubed my rails and z-axis screw with slick-honey type grease I use on my bike stanchions.

Gun oil works VERY well also… I use Slip2000’s EWL. It’s fantastic!
