I am getting ready to go through my table Saw to get ready for the fall and winter season. What is the best lube for the worms, worm gears, and other items? Any suggestions?

I use spray-on “dry” lubricant. IME, liquids or grease attract way too much dust.

WLG for me, too. I use the most expensive stuff on the shelf but I’m not entirely sure why. I guess I’m just “that” consumer they target this way;)

Can a normal mortal buy that stuff, August, or is a machinist secret?

August is on the right track, but what he showed, LU767, is developed for equipment in storage or shipment. What appears to be the best dry lubricant made be Sprayon is LU737. I haven’t tried it, but it sounds like it would work well. If you follow this link, you can click on the “where to buy” link at the bottom to find a place near you. There are lots of lubricants targeted for different applications.
