10-The Milling Machine - Milling Machine Maintenance
|It is imperative to use preventive maintenance on a regular basis. The milling machine is equipped with oilers and grease fittings to ensure that the ways and other contact areas are continuously lubricated.
Note the lubrication points on the machine. Look close as they can be somewhat hidden. To lubricate the various places on the mill you will either use a grease pump as shown here or an oiler as shown here.
It is important to keep your machine lubricated to avoid rust ( corrosion ) between the mating surfaces, and to avoid wear between surfaces.
Keep your milling machine clean and free of debris
