I am rebuilding a Powermatic 87 (20" wood/metal bandsaw) at work and need to change out the gearbox lubrication. It uses Vactra #1 which is ISO 32 viscosity. Unfortunately I need less than 1 gallon of the stuff and Vactra only comes in 5 gallon pails. Any recommendations on a substitute I can get in smaller quantities? McMaster has some 10wt oils, but most stuff looks to me unavailable or 5 week leadtime.

Thanks

We have a local lubricant supplier that has iso 32 oil on hand in 2.5 gallon jugs for considerably less than mobile.
