Makes sense, Bstrom, especially if like me you’re not using your machines every day.

Don t use steel wool to clean the leadscrews. The debris will get in the bearings and is impossible to remove.

Use a green Scotchbrite pad instead. Its tough enough to scour but won t leave destructive steel lint.

While I don’t know what leadscrews are, I didn’t use anything to clean this thing out other than air and a dull knife to knock loose trapped sawdust.

But regardless of what leadscrews are, that sounds like good advice for many applications.
