    Way oil vs HD hydraulic oil

    Am I wrong thinking that using HD hydraulic oil to fill the carriage and tail stock reservoirs? Way oil is sticky and will hold fine chips but hydraulic oil is easily pushed off by the way wipers. Ways are always oil covered being oiled by the reservoir and pump in the carriage.
