Timing belt squeaky sound. Can be lubricated?

Post by redirect303 » Mon Jul 01, 2019 8:16 am

I have this newly purchased MeCreator2 and I lubricated the rods with PTFE, which reduced a bit the overall noise, but there is this squeak which I assume it comes from the teeth of the timing belts rubbing against the pulley.

Would cause any potential problem if I'd use graphite powder to lubricate the belt? I am aware that any oil/solvent can damage the belt, hence the dry powder graphite... but i never used it and I don't know if it wouldn't make a mess everywhere (fall from the belt)... and then is the problem of making sure it doesn't get onto electronic contacts, as it might cause short-circuit.

Anyone tried to lubricate timing belt?

What do you think about this?
