  • Lubrication of the Harrison L5A lathe

    I've got a Harrison L5A lathe and they have a number of oil inserts for oil lubrication.
    Now, how do you get 30 weight oil into these fixtures? I've looked in all the machinery catalogues, and all I can find are greese guns. Thanks, John

    I use a good quality chainsaw grease gun.The type that is used to grease the nose of the bar.Works great.Just fill it with the oil you are going to use.

          Hi Alistair,

          It's good to be back 'on-line'- nmissed all my machining mates over the last few months.

          What's all this about you and green paint then??

            John: for about $7 you can pick up the oil "gun" like Harrison ships with M300 (and probably others). It's about 7" long and develops pressure within a cylinder at the tip when hand pressed against the oil port.

            I picked up an identical copy at a nearby Stihl chainsaw and brush cutter dealer. I'm sure others must have it (maybe Euro brands).

            Alistair: I'm working on painting a green Harrison M300 and John S. referenced you (and paint) in another thread. If he has already harassed me, I didn't recognize it
