Thanks for your thoughts, @latreche34 !
a fine powder of copper or aluminum mixed with a lubricant to a certain consistency, The drawback of those greases is they are little abrasive in the long run
That's exactly why I was considering a PTFE-based dry lubricant. Nothing to dry out, and not abrasive
I've done some more research. The Panasonic MolyTone grease is almost certainly a mineral oil-based Moly+Bentonite grease. Unfortunately, it tends to harden over time. A number of experts out there specifically anti-recommend going with anything of the kind because of that long term characteristic.
The most interesting alternative to MolyTone MOR265 I've seen now is a non-Silicone, PTFE-based grease, Super-Lube. Easily available everywhere. Very similar low-viscosity characteristics, acts as a dielectric (ie non-conducting), etc. Here's the TDS: [FONT=Lucida Sans Unicode, Tahoma, Geneva, Lucida, Lucida Grande, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]https://www.super-lube.com/Content/Images/uploaded/documents/TDS/Technical_Data_Sheet_Multi_Purpose_Grease.pdf
I've NOT found specs on the main cam gear grease (VFK0680). Lots has disappeared from the Web by now.
For spindle oil lubrication, supco also makes a synthetic oil with PTFE. Not sure if that's as highly recommended...
