    Oscar,

    One more question regarding the anti-seize lubricant. I read that the Loctite C5-A (505-1318) has copper and graphite suspended in an EP grease so would this be a good material to use for dead centers? Loctite says that it can also take tempertures up to 1800 degress F.

    Thanks....Mike

      Offhand I would say no. There are greases especially compounded for high pressure applications. These greases have a high content of molybdenum disulfide (moly) to handle the pressure. McMaster sells a variety of these greases. Some are lithium based others are of a aluminum-complex. Generally speaking if a grease is labelled extreme pressure that's what you want. I lay no claim to any expertise on the subject.

      I have been using two tubes of this type of grease for my infrequent use of dead centers. One of them was made by the Cimcool Div. of the Cincinatti Milling Machine Co. and the other is labeled Anti-Scoring, Extreme Pressure Lube #2 by the Evans Products Chicago, Ill.

      I have owned these tubes since I retired in '73, they're still 2/3rds full. Shows you how little dead center work I do.

        EP is Extreme Pressure - so go for it. I use Amsoil EP lithium grease (Racing) as they have superior low temp and high speed performance

          Mike,
          Did you ever find a slitting saw for your application?

          If it's not good enough for you, it's sure not good enough for anyone else.

            Kevin,

            I ordered one from Enco (together with an arbor) so hope it will work out.
