Slidway Oil Product Data And COSSH

Oil Application Information For Tool Machining

Suitable oils
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.

Slideway oils
A dedicated slideway oil is Rye Oil’s Slideway Oil 68 (ISO 68). However  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.
