Lubrication for Plastic Gears
March 9, 2011 at 02:09 PM
I have a scanner that has a motor that seems to be dying maybe. It is a gear motor and drives plastic looking gears (my guess is they are nylon) . They have some grease on them but its pretty dirty. My hope is that I can clean it up and apply new lubrication and at least get by a few more months till our new imaging system is implemented with a new scanner. My question is What to use for lubrication? White Lithium grease is what I am thinking?
