One of the first things a new machine tool owner wants to do is clean and lubricate their new toy. The second thing he or she will find out is that their are as many opinions about what is the best (or proper) lubricant for their machine; nearly all the machinists I have spoken to have their own preferences, but nearly all agree that Mobil lubricants are right up there at the top of their lists.The third thing they will learn is that most of these lubricants are only available in quantities that will cost a fortune. Tooling for the machines is expensive enough, lubricating it shouldn’t have to be expensive, too. One thing is for sure: Using the wrong oil, or NO OIL is VERY expensive!
This four bottle STARTER PACK contains 8 ounces of all the lubricants you will need to get started with your new machine. The kit includes:
8 ounces of MOBIL VACTRA #2 WAY OIL.
8 ounces of MOBIL VELOCITE #10 SPINDLE OIL
8 ounces of MOBIL DTE HEAVY/MEDIUM CIRCULATING OIL
8 ounces of MONROE COOL TOOL II CUTTING and TAPPING FLUID
These fluids come in easy dispenser top bottles, to keep right next to your new machine. I have a short explanation on the proper application of these oils on my blog at:
Please take a look at it, and it will answer most of the most frequent questions I get asked. It may seem “South Bend Lathe specific”, but I have been using these oils on a variety of machines for years, and they work well on many types of machines. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have, and be assured that all products come with a NO QUESTIONS ASKED MONEY BACK GUARANTEE.
