grease for big metal screw? - 15 replies

I have an old bookbinding press. I haven’t use it in awhile and it’s become hard to turn thescrew. While dust may be a factor I suspect thegrease on the 3” diameter screw has solidifiedand I’ll need to clean it off and re-grease it. Any suggestions on how to go about degreasingand what sort of grease to use?
