Lathe Lubrication

Paul R. Hvidston <p.hvidston@...>

Who uses what kinds of lubricants on their SB Lathes? A couple people have
already chimed in:

JS Early mentioned 30W ND oil.
Tom Miller mentioned Fastenal's p/n 62642, Super Lube Synthetic Based Lube

The SB lubrication chart calls for:

"Machine Oil Sybold Universal Viscosity Rating in Seconds at 100 degrees
Type A=100 sec., type B=150-240 sec., type C=250-500 sec.

And just what do those translate into? Right now I'm just keeping things
sliding with 30WT ND as I'm restoring my SB.
