I've been doing a lot of routing this last week using the table that incorporates the Unilift.

I thought I'd do a little maintenance on the lifting mechanism before I started, so out came the 3 in 1, gave it all a ggod clean and oil and it was working a smooth as anything.

This was the big mistake as the dust extraction takes the dust etc down through the insert and away to the extractor, on its route under the table it stcks to the nicely oiled bits and makes it hard to raise and lower the router.

Took be forever to get all the oil off, I now spray with PTFE and everything is fine.

Funny how we always learn by our mistake, well nearly always.

i have a mafell AD160 planer, and the major problem with that is
wood on the lead screws. mafell provide a plastic handle
which breaks if you overload it. first time out it was a pain, but a useful
thought once you get used to it.

dry lubes are definitely the way to go for anything which has to undergo
working in a wood working shop, since things won't stick to it.
