Lubrication

Use the information in the charts below as a daily
guide for lubrication tasks. We recommend using
grizzly t23962 (iso 68) or t23963 (iso 32) lubri-
cants (see Accessories, page 64) for most of the
lubrication tasks.

NOTICE
The recommended lubrication is based on
light-to-medium usage. Keeping in mind
that lubrication helps to protect the value
and operation of the lathe, these lubrication
tasks may need to be performed more fre-
quently than recommended here, depend-
ing on usage.
failure to follow reasonable lubrication
practices as instructed in this manual could
lead to premature failure of lathe compo-
nents and will void the warranty.
Headstock
oil type .... grizzly t23963 or iso 32 Equivalent
oil amount ........................................... 18 Quarts
Check/add Frequency ................................. daily
Change ................. Every 1000 operating hours
the headstock gearing is lubricated by an oil bath
that distributes the lubricant with the motion of the
gears, much like an automotive manual transmis-
sion. Change the oil after the first 300 hours of
use, then every 1000 hours.
Checking Oil Level
the headstock reservoir has the proper amount of
oil when the oil level in the sight glass is approxi-
mately halfway. the oil sight glass is located
on the right side of the headstock, as shown in
figure 111.
