the headstock, gearbox, and apron oil reservoirs
must have the proper amount of oil in them before
the lathe can be operated.
damage caused to the bearings and gears from
running the lathe without oil in the reservoirs
will not be covered under warranty. refer to the
Lubrication section, beginning on page 67, for
checking and adding oil.
in addition to the reservoirs, we also recommend
that you lubricate all other points on the machine
at this time. to do this, follow the steps provided in
the maintenance schedule on page 66.
Note: If this lathe was shipped with oil in the res-
ervoirs, do not change that oil until after the Test
Run and Spindle Break-In procedures.
add the coolant of your choice now. For detailed
instructions on where the coolant tank is located
and how to add fluid, refer to coolant System

Note About phase converters: Due to the
startup load from this machine, we do not recom-
mend using a static phase converter to create
3-phase power—as it can quickly decrease the
life of electrical components on this machine. If
you must use a phase converter, only use a rotary
phase converter. Only connect the manufactured
leg or "wild wire" to the L3 terminal (see loca-
tion in Figure 24 on Page 28). The L3 terminal
can handle power fluctuation because it is wired
directly to the motor.
