Power tool grease


Just finished up a build with Habitat and some of my tools need a good cleaning. Jigsaw is covered in dust from laminate flooring and my impact driver and hammer drill have been in the mud a few times. What type of grease is generally used for rebuilding power tools? Would a No.1 moly grease do the job?

Thanks

I'll answer my own question - spoke with a local "tool guru" who says he uses an "extreme pressure grease" with moly, which is around the consistency of a No. 1. Looks a lot like the stuff from the factory; black, tacky, jiggles like pudding.

I use white lithium for almost all shop tools, nowadays.
