Slideway Oil 220 for lubrication of machine toolways under the full range of low to high loading conditions. Slideway Oil 220 has a high film strength that makes perfect for slideways where ‘stick-slip’ causes chatter and where fine feed adjustments are necessary. While other working parts of machinery where improved lubricity and non-drip characteristics are desirable . Slideway Oil 220 exhibits superior extreme pressure characteristics as can be seen from the Timken and 4 ball wear tests.
Modified c0-effcient of friction eliminates ‘stick-up’ at low speeds, furthermore extreme pressure and anti-wear additives virtually eliminate all scoring and wear risks.
Slideway Oil 220 contains a sulphurised fatty additive which provides excellent extreme pressure properties. The addition of a good tacking agent gives it the best ‘non-drip’ characteristics.

Oil Application Information For Tool Machining
For use in many types of machine tool – including the geared headstocks and screwcutting gearboxes of lathes and milling machines – manufacturers from the 1940s onwards often recommended an “anti-wear” Hydraulic oil such as Hydraulic 32. These lubricants can deliver their specification performance while also being thin enough to be fed through wicks – a common fitting on many older machine tools, and used to draw up oil but leaving dirt behind. You can use this to resist the corrosion of copper and bronze. This is a good thing for the bronze bearings commonly found in headstocks and screwcutting gearboxes – would be eaten away by the detergents in a modern blended oil, especially a motor oils. Never use engine oils in these machines.
A dedicated slideway oil is Rye Oil’s Slideway Oil 220 (ISO 220). However, on small lathes, below 5-inch centre height, it may be found that a slideway oil with a ISO 220 viscosity is too heavy and the machine will function perfectly well with our Slideway Oil 68 ISO 68 grade. You can use Hydraulic 32 or 46 if you find slideway oils to ‘sticky. Assuming you dont need the tacking agent in our Slideway oil 68.
