The capacitor has blown on my sheppach panel saw so while I have the panels etc off before i fit the new one , I'm thinking of giving it a good cleaning and overhaul . I want to grease the chains and the rise and fall mechanism but wonder what is best to use . I dont want to use an oil that dust will stick to and clog it up , Any suggestions ? thanks .

Good lubes for applications where you want non-stick lubrication are
The silicone spray lube, PTFE spray and bike chain lube are all great for chains.
Graphite, silicone spray lube and PTFE spray lube are great for threads and pivots.
When choosing the spray lubes, you want ones that are solvent-based and don't contain oil. They'll leave a lubricating residue, but it will be non-stick.
Don't oil or lubricate any sealed bearings, it can dissolve the grease and shorten their life.
I hope that helps.
Take care and stay safe,
