sticky Lathe Lubricants

Tom Miller <millertam@...>

Paul and I have been trading notes on the SB lubricants and their
viscosity. I am curious as to what lubricants are used by folks that
have had SB lathes for a while. There are four types rec by SB, one
is a spindle oil, two oils for most of the rest of the oil pts and a
bed way oil. SB charges $7.50 per qt. Would appreciate hearing from
anyone that has exerperience with alternative sources of oil. thanks
