New bearings and Rods

hi everyone, I need to get new bearings and rods for my mk2.s. Very deep scratches, tracks. I also checked with a magnet and it is not attracted to it. 

I’ll have a new set ordered tonight. I was wondering what grease and degreaser do you use? Whether it’s Misumi or any other brand.

RE: New bearings and Rods

First, you're in the Prusa MINI Subforum.

Second - To answer your question: I've used alcohol to first clean my misumis - Datasheet says this isn't neccecary if you use the mentioned greasings.

Out of the datasheet of Misumis LMU8's:

"Recommended Grease: Lithium soap based grease (Alvania Grease S2 by Showa Shell Sekiyu).
Recommended Greasing Interval: Normally 6 months
Every 3 month when travel distance is extensive, or every 1000km" <- Industrial.

400g of this grease costs about 5 bucks and will last like forever. 

It’s better to give than to receive. Especially advice....
