    Kluber isoflex 15 i think is the greese we used for spindle bearings. About 15cc per bearing.
    You can get sealed bearings from High Quality Tools IN Ohio.

    i thought the spindle bearings were oil lubricated by one of the cups, at least the ones on mine are. the manual says to use 10w oil.

    Unless you have one of the sealed spindles, you should be using oil. I use ISO-32 hydraulic oil.
