I soaked my cables in a motorcycle chain lube, amazing how they just wicked that up and pulled it in.

I recently converted to a Jackshaft (wall-mount) opener and man, are there a few things they forget to tell you about ahead of time with that setup! I hope to detail the journey in another post.

I just had a spring break on mine last week. Had a full rebuild done (all rollers, drums, bearings, springs, etc). The tech that did the repairs just said to use white lithium grease on the rollers, hinges, and maybe drums too. I can't remember the frequency. Every 3 months, every 6 months, I dunno. I guess I should have written it down! But for about $500, it was a good value for what was replaced.
