I have a 10inch cabinet saw ( like the older Delta units), and I would like to lubricate the sliding bearing of the arbor mechanism shown in the attached photos. Can anyone advise the best way to do this, as I cannot locate any grease nipples.
I was thinking of applying a dry lubricant, like CRC Dry Glide, but don’t know if this would be suitable for this type of bearing and the weight associated with it.
The other problem is making sure that all the bearing mating surfaces are covered with the dry lubricant, but this is difficult as there are some sections of the bearings that are never exposed, unless you dismantle the whole arbor :(
You can see the arbor mechanism with the bearings indicated here

I would welcome any informed comments and expert technical opinions , please
