I took a look at my lathe (Puma 200) and saw that the upper Z axis rail seems to be getting less oil than other rails. The upper rail typically has a light film evenly spread on all of the sides, but it seems a little light compared to the lower rail which has a visible buildup of goo.
Is it typical for Puma lathes to have a light film on the upper Z rail?
I disconnected some of the lubrication lines to see if lube is coming out, and I get about a drop of oil with each hit on the lubricant pump cycle. I note that there are dosing doodads on each line which look like they're designed to push about a drop per cycle.
I'm not sure if anything is wrong. I'm just used to seeing a heavy coating on my VMC ways. I can't tell if the lower rail is more gooey because it's oriented in a way which accumulates more oil rather than it getting a heavier distribution per shot.
i dont have a lathe that small here (400-700) but what i can tell you by looking at them is that both rails seems to be lubricated about the same. What is the condition of your wipers?
Wipers seem to be in good shape. No tears or lifted areas.
