Lathe Gear lube ?
I am sure this has been beat to death in the past, and a search showed a couple of threads, but no definite answer. What lubricant are you guys using on the change gears etc on your lathes ? CRC has an "Open gear and chain" lube that looks like it might be the right thing, but I am not sure. Just finished going through all of the gears on my Craftsman 12". Cleaned everything immaculate and need to lube the gears up. I imagine that as little as I use the geared part of the lathe, almost anything would work, but I would prefer to use something designed for the job. The manual calls for Keystone 122 gear lube, but who knows what the modern equivelant is ?
Any suggestions ?
