    Default Wells Index 645 Milling Machine Lubrication

    I recently purchased an Index 645 milling Machine, and absolutely love it.
    I want to lubricate it properly, and would like your advise on how to do so.

    There are many grease zerks on the machine in locations where I would expect way lube to be used.
    Can I buy a lube gun that I can fill with way lube that will fit on these grease zerks or ?

    Also, any other advise on how to lube the head, and other parts of the machine would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance,

    Curt

    Yes. They are out there. Or one can modify from several candidates. Who-struck-John step-by-step and photos of a few are on PM ..somewhere..

    And, no Alemite's Zerk design was never JUST for grease. One can put a rubber/plastic snap-cover over them and/or just clean them carefully and have a much lower risk of contamination that most other options that can be gotten into awkward spaces and/or placed in any position, gravity and vibration immaterial.
