Servo Grease
« on: June 19, 2007, 08:36:57 PM »
Hey - I had a quick question, what type of grease should you use to lube the gears in servos? I actually just tried white lithium grease but it causes too much drag.

Hell, there are no rules here—we're

try this http://www.junun.org/MarkIII/Info.jsp?item=42
that's awesome and they're not jacking up the price.
I tried some engine rebuild grease we had laying around (it was white and had a similar feel)

I got a nice size tube by going into an Auto Parts store and asking for the best lubricant for Delrin gears... it was white and seems to work very well.
