ized cone tip. We do not recommend using metal
needle or lance tips, as they can push the ball too

the ball in the oil galley.
lubricate the ball oilers before and after machine
use, and more frequently under heavy use. When
lubricating ball oilers, first clean the outside sur-
face to remove any dust or grime. push the tip of
the oil can nozzle against the ball oiler to create
a hydraulic seal, then pump the oil can once or
twice. if you see sludge and contaminants coming
out of the lubrication area, keep pumping the oil
can until the oil runs clear. When finished, wipe
away any excess oil.
