    Default Marunaka Overarm Router calls for Liquid Paraffin No. 150

    Can anyone tell me what oil to put in this machine. It is for the spindle bearings.
    Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

    Yes, the sign on the left states to use liquid paraffin for hand lubrication of bearing points. One can find this product on amazon.jp readily enough, but probably not exportable:

    So would this be mineral oil with 150 centiStokes viscosity? I don't read Japanese well enough to decipher why it's referring to both 32 cSt and 460 cST @ 40C in the Amazon product description.

    I'd expect to use a much lighter oil than ISO 150 in a high-speed spindle, though.
