Also important to note, there was another episode of the HSM-Podcast released:
Home Shop Machinists Podcast – Episode 13 –
Have You Checked Your Oil?
Interesting discussion about lubrication of machine tools and Justin bought another machine, a Canadian made lathe.
I want to add one or two points regarding lubrication/maintenance and will do a video on that topic in the future.
As for providing oil to Zerkfittings, I found that a push-style greasegun works generaly ok with heavy way oil, especially the one made by Mato:
Mato PO 150-2 (Sorry, did not find a link in english.)
For the smaller type of oil-point with the ball I prefer a good oilpump like the Reilang which has no problem of creating enough pressure to get the oil past the ball and into the oil grooves.
