WHICH GREASE FOR DIE-SINKER SPINDLE ?

Just got myself an Alexandra 3a pantograph....this is the one that
looks identical to the deckel gk-21....and is a 3d
pantograph/die-sinker.
There is one thing puzzeling me in.
in the intruction manual it recomends that you pump vaseline
(PETROLIUM JELLY) into the spindle/cutting head.
I cant see vaseline having any antiwear properties.....
Has anyone used one of these machines .......can they recomend
anything better than this....bearing in mind that the spindle can turn
at up to ten thousand rpm.
SOME OF THE DECKEL VERSIONS DO TWENTY THOUSAND RPM.
IF anyone has a deckel users manual what does it say in there about the lube.
Also has anyone got a cam profiling atachment and a setting bar for
this machine....or any other atachments come to think about it.
All the best.........mark
