As a guy that just took apart his SW/Synta (N)EQ5, regreased it and put it back together and, apparently out of inertia, tries to educate himself on mount and gears greasing, just want to ask you if anyone has tried, on a mount or something else similar to a mount, the Molykote 3451.
I came down to this option after a while spent reading some tens of pages and documents about lubrication, grease basic concepts, grease advanced concepts, base oils, thickeners, additives and so on, yadda yadda yadda...
Molykote 3451's base oil is fluorosilicone, that is - to my current knowledge - friendly to most plastics (as the (N)EQ5 does have some plastic/PTFE spacers/washers), also friendly to bronze and - perhaps - other metals, and apparently it is thickened only with PTFE/teflon, according to the data sheet. I'm sure it's not the only one with these specifications, but I've found the documentation on their site to be quite sufficient to make it interesting.
Is it similar to the Superlube mentioned earlier (I'm not sure which gease is mentioned here, as there are several variations, perhaps the Multipurpose one), or is it something a tad different?
My asking here is due to the fact that at some point in the near future I'll be trying to replace the kinda crappy radial 6007 bearing on the RA axis with a not so crappy angular 7007 bearing variant and, when I'll come to that, I'll completely change the grease I've used so far, that is black MoS2 additivated grease for the worm, worm wheels and motor gears, which, after some days of trying to educate myself, seems a bit overkill, and red PTFE 'bike' grease for the plastic/PTFE washers/spacers on which the worm wheels sit, grease which, if it has mineral oil as its base oil, might not be suited for plastics on the long term... I'll be changing the axial bearing at the end of the Dec. axis also, but that's peanuts
The only downside to this grease would be that it can be cleaned off with acetone or benzene and such, and not with alcohol(s).
