I just received a 2003 Performax 16-32 Plus Drum Sander. Price was right (free). It has sat unused for the last 18 yrs. The motors run, drum spins and the belt works. Those are the good points.
Because it has sat for so long the threads to raise and lower the motor are full of grime. I used some WD40 and a rage on it and it moves but is still very hard to turn the handle.
I figure my best course is to tear the whole thing down and clean, lube and align everything.
My question is what kind of lube should I use on the threads and misc. bolts.
