On my machine I have been using a PTFE spray to lubricate the dovetail cross slides ( it used to be a spark eroder). Is there something more suitable I should be using, engine oil or grease etc? as it looses steps if I tighten up the gibbs ( if that is the right word) to remove the slack. I only machine wood, plastic and PCBs and I was worried that if I used oil the slides would quickly gunk up.
Thanks Paul
