This is a CQ6128Ax660 from the Yangzhou Supermachine Tool Company. The
manual is hideous and poorly illustrated.
The lube instructions ask for the infamous 2# tube grease to be applied
to the oil bails on the headstock.
"Grease into oil bail on headstock".
The oil bails are just that, they fit flush with the surface and they
have a spring loaded ball sealing off the passage. One of the balls has
already fallen into the headstock [Grizzly says that's not a problem".
Now when I was growing up, one applied grease through a zerk. Can anyone
tell me how an oil bail is supposed to work with a grease gun? Is there
any nozzle that will maintain enough of a seal?
Or has the Yangzhou Supermachine Tool Company screwed up with oil bails?
Anyone use oil on the headstock?
