Thomson currently has two account systems - one for the website and CAD model downloads, and one for e-commerce. We understand that two logins is an inconvenience and are working to consolidate our systems into one login process. Until we’re able to consolidate the two logins, please follow these guidelines:
Thomson Ball Bushing® bearings
are shipped with rust preventative oil (unless otherwise specified).
Rust preventative oil is not adequate lubrication for use. Prior to
installation, bearings require a small amount of grease or oil to
operate properly. Which lubrication to choose is dependent on many factors. Some
guidelines are as follows.
General applications - EP2, extreme pressure NLGI grade 2 lubricant
Food-grade applications - Thomson Linear Lube (Teflon-based synthetic grease)
