I've just been given an old (50+ years) drill press. It appears to be in
great condition with little use, but the moving parts are sticky/gummed up.
I want to dis-assemble and clean everything. What type of grease/oil should
I use on the various parts? I suppose there are low-speed parts (quill
w/splines, table crank, etc.) and high speed parts (input shaft w/bronze
bushings). Lithium grease? Oil? What type/weight and where?
Thanks for all replies,
