Hi guys! I recently picked up some air/water/oil solenoids and wanted to make an oil system for my Van Norman #2Duplex mill. Would appreciate opinions on whether you would make yours a gravity fed system that opens solenoid when machine is on,or pressurized system with maybe 20-30psi that oils when I press a button? I never forget to oil my machines so being on a button will not mean Ill forget to oil it. My solenoids can handle 135psi. Not positive if Ill need oil "grooves" on my ways or not,but im willing to put grooves in if anybody thinks theyre needed. Thanks, Brian.
