    Default Drive cable grease


    Dont buy expensive grease for your sanders drive cable from the manufacture I use a pot of high temperature bearing grease from any good carparts shop.I clean and grease my sander head and drive cable every couple of months and the tub of grease will last a lifetime.

    Would copper grease you use on car brakes work?

    Alex copper grease goes to mush very quickly due to the high speed and temprature

    Of course you could always buys belmore official Flex grease in a handy syringe!
