3.
thoroughly clean all unpainted, bare metal
surfaces, then apply a liberal coat of way oil.
4.
lubricate the machine as outlined in the lubri-

purge all ball oilers and the oil passages with
oil.

Cover and place the machine in a dry area
that is out of direct sunlight and away from
hazardous fumes, paint, solvents, or gas.

once or twice a month, depending on the
ambient humidity levels in the storage envi-
ronment, wipe down the machine as outlined

steady rest down the lathe bed to make sure
that way spotting is not beginning to occur.

every few months, manually rotate all gear-
driven components a few times in several
gear selections. this will keep the bearings,
bushings, gears, and shafts well lubricated
and protected from corrosion, especially dur-
ing the winter months.
