    Default Advise on lubrication for reassembling a KO Lee Cutter Grinder

    I am reassembling my B860 KO Lee cutter grinder and not sure how the saddle for the Y axis is actually lubricated. I have cleaned up and stoned the mating surfaces between the main casting and the saddle with precision ground stones. The main casting ways(which are removable)are pretty clean and are out of parallel by about 0.0015 on the back. The ways on the saddle are somewhat gouged up a bit but you can still see the scraping marks. They are also not worn too much, maybe up to a couple of thousandths on the back end. When I took the saddle off it was so gummed up that I couldn't discern what type of lubrication was, or should be used. The top of the saddle has a lubrication well and spring loaded wicks to lubricate the X axis ways. I plan to use the same way lube I use on my Harig 6x12 surface grinder.

    Also any ideas about surface grinding the removable ways to parallel? How about scraping a pattern on them when finished?

    Any advise or ideas are certainly welcome.
