There is a lot more swarf and dust on a router than a printer so lube may be more important along with cleaning ?

Thanks, I will give a little dry lube to my ender 3. I have a new Ender 5 pro that has been sitting in the box for a week or so. I hope to that up and running very soon.

Thanks! Very well! It's super stable and feels like a much larger quad than it actually is.

In case anyone is interested, AliExpress is having a Black Friday sale on the Ender 3X for US$167 with free shipping starting on November 23. That price is and free shipping is from their US warehouse and I assume shipping to a US address.
