Rotary table Lubrication

I just purchased a new rotary table. It has "oil ports" on it. The movement is astoundingly smooth in both forward and reverse. I have contacted the factory but [obviously] they do not speak any other language other than their own. I have read, in forums how so many have purchased "off shore" tables...

Re: Smithy Midas 1220 LTD Quick Change Toolpost Help

Smithy has a bushing specifically for that it should be in their website. It is called a "Chicago Bolt pn# 45-268. I bought and used one on my Smithy for quite awhile with no problems. Inexpensive too!

Tool Grinder Wheels

I just purchased a Tool Grinder and luckily it came with a Norton Diamond wheel for carbide grinding. I went looking for a CBN/Borozon wheel for the opposite side for HSS, and find that most all the 6A2C wheels from China (must be trued and balanced), prior to use.
