In the directions for my new 11 x 26 lathe it says to grease the two main spring loaded ball bearings for the main spindle bearings. Does anyone know how to accomplish this? The little spring loaded ball bearings don't let the oil get into the bearing very well so how can you get grease into them? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Chuck

Hello Chuck,
Welcome to the forum!
I think that's a typo, I would use a 10 weight machine oil in the ball oilers.

Thanks for the reply.  Does the machine come pre-oiled. I ran it for a little bit just to make sure the motor and geartrain worked. I hope I didn't hurt a bearing.

I think you will be OK as long as you did not run it to long..
