SETTING UP THE MACHINE
The #4 Milling Machine is an accurate machine tool. It should be carefully handled at all tines.
The most satisfactory manner of moving the machine after it has been uncrated is to fasten ropes under both the front and
rear of the overarm, and gently lift it with a crane. Extreme caution should be used to avoid jarring, dropping, or nicking
any of the surfaces.
For optimum results be sure that the machine is leveled and rigidly secured.
Before operating, remove the protective shipping sludge with clear gasoline; oil the bearing surfaces and lead screws. If
available, it is suggested that the excess gasoline be blown off with compressed air. Be sure to clean all particles of dirt
from inside the spindle opening, and use equal care in cleaning the tapered shank of the drive arbor.
The spindle of the #4 Milling Machine is equipped with grease-lubricated roller bearings. The proper amount of
lubricant has been applied at the factory. Every month, or after approximately 150 hours of operation, additional grease
should be added. Use-grease similar to Lubriplate #310.
Each time the spindle is lubricated add a small amount of the same grease to the gear box.
All moving parts, including lead screws, shafts, and the knee, saddle, and table ways should be oiled after each day's
operation. Any good grade of lubricating oil may be used for this purpose.
Ball bearing gearhead motors provided with these Milling Machines are lubricated at the factory. Every 1000 hours of
operation, (usually six months), additional lubricant should be added. Use any good grade of ball bearing grease, but do
