I have an M5 threaded rod that penetrates a box. Outside it is driven by a motor and it rotates a part inside the box. The box is sealed and I would like to seal the area around the rod as well. I have seen double lip oil seals but I don't think they will work.
The oil is very runny, like water and the reason I am not using a smooth rod (which would be simpler to use in this application) is mainly in order to save on tooling costs as I can get the rods already threaded for very cheap.
Any help would be appreciated!
