Hi

Has any SX3 mill owners worked out a way of oiling the z nut? It seems to me you have to take the black electronics box off the back just to get at the nut. Is there any clever mod' anyone has done to be able to lubricate this easily.

Thanks

Rich

Looking at the arc instructions it looks like it is a greased component so should not need oiling.

Don't think I have ever touched my similar X3 in 13yrs, still on the original grease.
