sys-port 1000/2 clean up question
« on: January 16, 2023, 07:43 AM »
So i came across sys-port 1000/2 and it does need a bit of clean up. 
Drawer slides are working but a bit sticky with all the grime and wood dust cacked in.

Whats a good grease to grease them back up after i'm done cleaning them?
Quick search shows that white lithium grease works well. I have some ballistol, dry lube and marine blue grease.  Trying to see what works best?

Also is there  away to disable the green button to open "feature"?

Balistol should be good for this. It's a cleaner and lube. It may turn out to be too sticky though and attract the dust again?
What I have been using lately is a product called "Slip it". It is really designed to work with wood to wood contact, like old fashioned drawers with wood runners, but it works great on ball-bearing drawer guides. It goes on in a very thin film that feels somewhere between wax and grease, but doesn't dry/harden.

Ended up using marine grease (can you say overkill) but thats what i had.  Then managed to find white lithium grease and used that for the rest of the slides.
