Lubricating

Hello 3D printers,

how often and how much do you lubricate the mechanics?  Since I want my printer to last long and deliver precise results I lubricate after every few hours, first I remove the old grease which is already grey and apply the new grease generously onto rods and nearby the shafts, which forms kind of a seal that prevents dirt ingestion.

I use this grease:http://www.sherline.com/7550pg.htm

Am I doing to much? Any recommendations from Zortrax?

Thank you

Andi

Ok, should have read before ;)  Every 250-500 working says the maintenance guide. So I guess I overdo it.
