Grime-stoppers, rid your tablesaw of dust
Apply lube -- but do it right
Once you've blown and brushed clean all the internal components, lubricating them with more grease will only attract gunk-building dust again. Instead, coat them (above photo) with a penetrating, self-drying lubricant such as ProGold's PG2000. (See Source below.) This product soaks into the pores of the steel and cast iron to provide the much-needed lubrication without attracting dust. Squirt some onto the cleaned parts, and then turn the handwheels to spread the lube evenly. Have a rag handy to wipe up any excess lubricant. Wait for the PG2000 to dry before cutting wood again. Make sawdust while it's wet and you'll just create the problem again. You might need two or three applications for best results.
