There’s been an ongoing post on the Ward’s Powr-Kraft model TPC-2610 Radial arm saw here: that I got a lot of help from. Now that I have the saw apart and cleaned up I’m looking for suggestions on what’s the best lube for the column. I have some Heavy Duty Bearing Grease but I’m thinking there’s probably something better. Ideas?

Hi there when I rebuild my Craftsman RAS I used a basic wheel bearing grease. It’s worked for over a year.

I clean it well and use paste wax. The wax won’t attract dust. (although it sounds like it has worked for Ray)
I just did that to the column on my drill press.
