Lubricant for plunge router guide posts

Bruce, a MN Galoot
The guide posts on my plunge router, Makita 3612BR, have gotten sticky. I don't know if it's the cold or what, but I'm wondering what is the best lubricant for router guide posts when it will frequently be used in cold weather, down to about 10F. My shop gets a bit cold in the winter.

I've had this thing for 35+ years, and I really like it, so I'm not inclined to just get a new one unless absolutely necessary.

Powdered graphite or spray teflon?
