I was away for about 3 weeks and just returned to find a serious amount of rust all over my z axis lead screws on both sides!
I only assembled my kittaz in December and printed a few things and already its out of commission . I never greased the machine and don’t think I live in a particularly humid area (Oakland, CA). The machine is, however, exposed to the sun for several hours a day. I noticed that there is more rust on the side closest to the window. Maybe thats not helping?
Do I need to buy replacements already? Very sad. I guess I also need to pick up some lithium grease to prevent this from happening again?
