My Ridgid 12" sliding compound miter saw was slow to come up to speed. I removed the inspection plate to the reduction gear and found that all of the lubricant was caked on the sides of the housing away from the gears. I re-packed some of the grease around the gears and it came up to speed like normal. Does anyone know if the housing should be completely packed with grease and what kind of grease to use?
