Any suggestions on a lubricant for acme lead screw with wood and plastic swarf. I have been using Mobil 1 on the acme of my metal cutting machines with good success.

If you have a plastic nut, try a dry lubricant. Oil and sawdust don't go together well.

I use Vac-2 on our leadscrew on our engine lathe and cnc mill seems to work well. But like above oil and sawdust don't mix well together.
