  • I was reading a post about you owning a Brown and Sharpe vertical mill in the past and was wondering if you have any information on who currently owns it. I am working on restoring mine and could use some pictures and measurements of all the pulleys since mine were removed for a conversion, at some point along the years.
    Thank you.
    Im a Massachusetts machinist who collects these vintage decimal equivalent signs, if youd ever be willing to part with it, let me know, I love it!😂
    I use 20 weight non-detergent motor oil in the headstock and in the apron filler. Non detergent is the key. I use vactra 2 way oil on the ways and way wipers. According to the previous owner, these are the lubes they used on my machine since 1946 when it was purchased.

    You commented on a post that you have a 1946 LeBLOND 13" as well. What oil do you use in yours?
