Lubricate the column
Most benchtop mortiser heads slide up and down on a dovetailed column. To minimize metal-on-metal friction, apply a lubricant that dries without leaving a residue, such as Bostik TopCote or Empire Dri-Tool [Sources, slide 5]. A lubricant that leaves a greasy or oily residue will attract dust, requiring more frequent cleaning and relubricating.
