THESE ARE THE “RECOMMENDED OILS” IN the South Bend Lathe publication: “How to Run a Lathe”
For some time I’ve been selling lathe and machine tool oils, and have been asked to put together a kit for the SBL lathe owner that follows the recommended oiling regimen set forth in the Bible: “How to Run a Lathe”. This kit contains (4) 16 oz. bottles of the ONLY lubricants you will need for your South Bend Lathe. you will receive:
16 ounces of: South Bend Lathe “A” type oil, which is Mobile Velocite #10 spindle lubricant. This will be used in the headstock spindle
16 ounces of: South Bend Lathe “B” type oil. which is Mobil DTE 24 (ISO 32), which will be used in your gearbox.
16 ounces of: South Bend Lathe “C” type oil, which is Mobil DTE Heavy/Medium (ISO 68), which will be used to lubricate “everything else”.
(that would be screws, external gears, tailstock, etc.)
16 ounces of: South Bend Way Oil, which is Mobil Vactra #2 Way Oil, which will be used to lubricate the sliding Way surfaces of the lathe,
(The ways, compound and cross slide).

These kits are EXACTLY what “How to Run a Lathe” recommends, and in the quantities that my customers have been asking for. Theres no need to buy either a Gallon, or a Five Gallon pail of each oil; I’ve already done that. You will receive a FOUR pints (Thats a Half Gallon) of oil, which will keep the average Home Shop Machinist going for quite a while. They will ship in a USPS Medium Flat Rate Box ( I can fit two kits in a MFR Box) within 24 hours of checkout. PLEASE Email me for larger quantities. I am very happy to ship to INTERNATIONAL buyers at the prevailing rates VIA Priority Mail. Thanks for looking.
