You need lube for the machine. Should be listed on the tags. What's that? You say the tags are missing? Ok. Lubes are listed in the manual. What's that? You bought a machine with no manual? Oh. Have you contacted the MTB? Most likely you will end up with Wayoil 68 anyway. No worries, right? You probably should spend $2500.00 on tool holders and cutting tools right away. Don't worry that what you might want to cut might call for specific tools. And don't worry that end mills that cut stainless best won't cut aluminum very well. Or that end mills that cut aluminum best won't cut stainless at all. Or will they? Be ready to spend another $2500.00 on cutting tools (and a few more holders) when you are done practicing and ready to actually make some parts. Did you buy Machinery's Handbook before you bought a machine and study it cover to cover? Not likely, huh. Who in their right mind would waste time and money on something so chocked full of knowledge and information? Still no worries. There is the trial and error method of learning. Maybe for "practice" (whatever that means), you should start with one 1/2" diameter carbide end mill and one 1/2" diameter HSS end mill. By all means, practice on wood and plastic, since they cut nothing like aluminum or stainless. Buy the cheapest vises you can find. That way you will get more exercise when you throw them through the wall in anger because they will not repeat location within 0.010". If it looks like a Kurt vise, it must work like a Kurt vise. Clean air? You took the filter off your compressor already, right? Little particles of dust and grit help smooth out the cylinder bore so it can run faster and use less electricity due to less friction. Assuming your other tools would prefer that you hook them straight to the garden hose. Do not bleed moisture out of the air system on daily use. Do not install traps at air outlets. Both are a waste of time and money. Everyone knows you need to keep more of your money for beer and sports entertainment. Pro ball players nationwide will thank you.
