Don't know for sure but I'd use a food grade lub, available at espresso part
supply websites. Also used for pre-lubing group gaskets for easier
insertion, E61 lever cams etc. Don't think Tom carries it.

I can do that, I have mineral oil and others, but it looks and feels
identical to White Lithium Grease (which I also have).  I am really curious
since I am in the process of taking it apart.
Thanks, miKe

White lithium grease is fine, to me.  It isn't in contact with food, so food 
grade isn't needed any more than you'd need to use food grade lubricant on the 
motor bearings below.  imo, Dan

Eddie,
What most of the espresso machine repair operations use is 'Sanitary Petrol
Gel Lubricant' by McGlaughlin Oil Co..  It is a mineral oil based grease
with a high melting point and is food safe...definately isn't lithium
grease.  A tube will last you forever.

Eddie,
I think the original lubricant in the Mazzer is, as you said, white lithium
grease.Whatever you use on the mazzer...wipe it almost completely off before
re-assembly....helps keeping things clean, next time.

I use a silicon lubricant designed for use on pressurized gas fittings &
gauges. I've found it useful for a variety of tasks. It has worked well on
adjustment rings & the threads of burrs. I also use it on fountain pens
(another hobby). The silicon is chemically benign so will not interact with
materials used in old pens.
It's available at most dive shops.

This Silicon lube is excellent for the purpose. It's clear, not white, and
not cheap, but the best in the application, IMHO. -ro
