Hi all
I just purchased a nice shaper and have a couple of questions for you all.
The machine has lube fittings that look some what like grease fittings but are a little larger. What kind of lube do these take I would think it uses a specal oiling gun instead of grease if so could I replace these fittings and decated a grease gun with oil ? Also I purchased this machine to be able to do internal splines and key ways so I need to find what I think is called an extenshion or a tool holder like a boaring bar for a lathe. Any ideas as where to find such a tool? Thanks in advance for the help. Larry

No info to add just did a quick search and came up with this old thread: http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/showthread.php?t=10141

It was probably made less than 30km from where I'm typing this..
