Lubricants for the Hendey

Post by skipd1 » Wed Dec 15, 2021 1:54 pm

I am looking for some advice as to what are the proper lubricants for the Hendey 12x30 lathe. This lathe has separate front and rear reservoirs for its tapered roller spindle bearings and what would be the best for the headstock and quick change gear box. I believe the apron needs Way oil as it uses its oil reservoir to lubricate the cross slide and ways. I am making the assumption the Mobil DTE Heavy Medium Circulating oil might work for the gear cases, not sure for the spindle bearings.
Thanks
