CNC Bridgeport - Way Oil

edited June 2013 in cnc
I added the last of the Way Oil to the reservoir on the side of the mill recently.  Therefore, I'll pickup a new gallon from Production Tool soon.  Probably tomorrow.

The mill has a placard that says Sunco #1180 next to the reservoir.  I'm assuming this is not critical and any Way Oil will do.  Please, correct me if I'm wrong before I dump some money on oil.

Thanks,
Jim

  • I used to be a machinist for a few years and I used ATF. Lots of detergent to keep contaminants out of solution, good high pressure oil, and relatively cheap. Although does have a slight odor..
  • Perfect timing on your comment.  The Bridgeport stopped dead in it's tracks today with a "Oil Sump Low" error message.  Even with a little oil added, and the error message gone, I couldn't restart the machine from where it stopped.  So, I'm off to the store to look for ATF oil.

    Thanks,
