Hello, I recently purchased a Schaublin 102-vm, which is a relatively small but highly precise lathe. The various manuals specify the lubricants to be used, or rather the recommended viscosity depending on the locations. However, I haven't bought these lubricants yet, as they are not available in nearby stores. I'm wondering if synthetic motor oil could be suitable for a few hours of use. This may sound like a stupid question, and it is, but just have to know for once.
