I have a Stanko lathe. Not that model though. Pretty much like what OLD Fart said. You might not even have to bring it to room temperature. Remember it came from the former USSR. John Stevenson wrote on here to me that Russian machines are like their women. Not so pretty but hard workers. That you could drop it from an airplane without a chute and it would still probably hold to tenths.

That's not true about the women. Like whiskey they keep the best in back.
You need to become worthy of access.

Dry her out. Hit it with evaporust to remove all the nasty without damaging the underlying metal.

A little tlc and away you go.

I don't want to alarm you, but I think your lathe is leaking some snow.

That isn't snow that is Siberian cutting fluid.
