    -There is no "best" stuff. Any oil is sufficient, as long as it's not a thin "penetrating" type that evaporates.

    Generally speaking, for day-to-day one-off stuff, I use simple, inexpensive motor oil as a cutting oil. I have more exotic stuff, like dark sulfurized cutting oil, Tap Magics, way oils, etc. that I use as needed, but if I'm just tapping a hole in mild steel with a good sharp tap, a dab of motor oil does the job just fine.

    I'll also use that, on a rag, to mop a bit of oil on something I don't want to rust, like parallels and sine bars.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with using it on exposed cast iron- like a tablesaw top- to help prevent rust. (Apart from, of course, having to clean it off before use.)

    That said, most of my machines get regular use, and thus regular distribution of normal lubes. Between that and a relatively low local humidity, flash rust isn't generally an issue for me.

        Chips? You know a machine is old when it has a name like No 2.

          That's actually a size designation. It's not like it's only the second one they built.

          The smallest is a No.1, this one's the next up, a No.3 is only marginally larger but has more features, the No. 4 is considerably larger, and the No.5 is probably twice as large. Then there's the 1A, 2A, etc. up to the 5A, which weighs over 20,000 pounds.

            I figured that. But when they make things today, they call it the Dremel 2000 or the Rikon 70-220VSR lathe. If you called it No. 2, everybody would think it's too simple to be worth much.
