Accessing the idler pulley on the X-Axis for oiling requires a lot of stuff to removed to gain access.
You have to remove the Y rods, X rods and the platform, then unscrew the idler pulley bolt to remove the top plate to gain access. This is a pretty good incentive to put up with awesome squeaking.
With this thing, disassemble once more, then never again. You just unscrew the 2 bolts on top and oil away !
When it comes to oiling, just unscrew the 2 bolts on top, remove the plate, oil and put back.
