    Mobil Spinesstic 10

    having just put 2 1/2 gallons of the Morlina 10 in my lathe, I can tell you that you are mistaken. I've handled lots of kerosene as a cleaning fluid and diesel as well. the Morlina is very light but not that light.

    the oil I drained out looked pretty new, kind of a gold color I saved it for who knows what. refilling the lathe took 2 1/2 gallons. the Shell Morlina is completely clear. the 2 oils poured thru the funnel about the same as far as seat of the pants viscosity.

    I have a nice little Bison 5C collet chuck but it's 1-1/2 8TPI from my old lathe. what are the options for a lathe with an L1 mount? I've been googling and saw a Hardinge Speed Chuck in 5C/L1 a few weeks ago on ebay, but it sold before I closed the deal on my new machine. most I see are 2J or...

    well, I think I'm just going to bite the bullet and order a 5-gallon pail of Shell Morlina S2 BL 10. Keller-Heartt has it for 155.00 with free shipping. the Shell distributer in my area is Lynch Oil and they won't sell me anything less than a 55 gallon drum.
