The cutting fluid reservoir should be cleaned about once a year of normal use. For access to the reservoir, remove the three 3/8" socket head cap screws and one flat head screw in the side of the pan which hold the machine base plate to the pan. It will be necessary to remove the belt guard for access to the two screws in the rear. Since all parts are attached to the base plate, the entire assembly can be lifted clear when the four screws are removed.
Caution! When re-installing the base plate assembly, be sure the washers between the base plate and the pan are in place. These washers give the base plate a 3-point suspension so any movement or twisting of the pan will not cause machine mix-alignment.
The spindle head bearings should be greased at least once a year of normal use. Use a good grade of bearing grease and apply it sparingly.
Lubricate in the air line by disconnecting it at the regulator outlet and squirting in a small amount of light machine oil - no more than 20 drops - then re-connecting the line. Do not put oil in the regulator.
