Topic tags/keywords: grizzly 1023sl table saw ts lubricating oil maintenance

I could probably find this online, but I figured my LJ friends here could provide me with more detailed instructions and photos maybe on the oiling/lubricating parts on the saw.

I keep the table waxed, leveled and keep the fence in good shape. I just need some photos or something on what to do about the lubricating on the parts.

Sounds about right. I also check my blade angle sets and vacuum out any sawdust and spray my high/angle “screws” with dry lube.

This is for the G0690-691 which is basically a reworked/improved version of your G1023SL

Other than that, I use a LITTLE bit of WD-40 on the trunnion bushings (NOT the gears)/bearings. Too much and you just attract the sawdust and create wood putty. I actually wipe what I can reach after spraying, to minimize any oily film build-up.

No pics to prove it, but I brush the saw dust out of the elevation and tilt gears and spray them with white lithium grease or brush on some paste wax if I don’t have any lithium grease.
