    I also just found this thread, and just placed my order for a G0602 on Saturday. Grizzly sent me an e-mail today saying that they were out of stock and expecting delivery around October 15, and my delivery would be 3-5 days after that.

    The fact that you and Hossmachine both chose the G0602 was an important deciding factor for me in buying this lathe.

    Looking forward to your further progress!

    Thanks TB.

    Congrats on buying the best-bang-for-buck lathe. Demand keeps increasing, so Grizzly can't keep them in stock. Everybody wants the best value.

    CR.

    CR,

    Haven't seen you post for awhile on your CNC conversion. I hope everything is going OK for you.

    As seems to be typical for Grizzly, they handily beat their estimated delivery time on my G0602 10x22 by quite a bit. Rather than having the lathe by Oct 18-20, FedEx actually delivered the lathe last Wednesday Oct. 6. Boy, but this lathe is larger than it looks in the pictures! Your uncrating and teardown pages on your website came in very handy. Like others, I had a hard time getting the chuck off. I ended up heating the chuck and spindle with a heat gun set on high for around 3 minutes or so, and the warm/hot chuck ended up melting the red goo and letting the chuck come loose.

    I'm still cleaning the lathe of all the red goo days later, but I'm getting to the point where I need to refill the gear box. Are you using Mobil DTE Heavy Medium oil like the manual says or something else? How about the 10 weight machine oil? I'm having a hard time finding these oils locally.

    Hi TB. Congratulations on your new lathe purchase. I have been busy lately, but hope to get back to the project soon.

    DO NOT OIL THE SPINDLE BEARINGS! This will only wash out their grease and cause premature failure.

    There are many posts about GB oil here:

    CR,

    Thanks for the reply.

    And thanks for the heads-up on not oiling the spindle bearings. By the way, how hot should these bearings get? During my 10-15 minutes break-in at 1200 RPM, the spindle bearings (and the spindle without the chuck) got hot enough where I couldn't comfortable touch them for more than a couple of seconds. Is this something I should be concerned with?

    I took a look over at the Yahoo group about gearbox oil, but it looks like the recommendations all over the map. What are you using for gearbox oil? And what are you using for the other 9 ball oilers? What are you using on the ways?

    Thanks for any help, and I'm definitely looking forward to more posts on your CNC conversion.

    There is a big misconception on this forum about spindle bearings getting hot. At first brand new bearings will get hot, it's what they do.

    I built a custom tool post grinder with cheap Chinese taper roller bearings just like you see in these mills and lathes and it runs at 8000RPM with a 7" friction coating rubber hog wheel all day long taking .200-.300 DOC and it doesn't get any where near hot enough to do any damage.

    Now at first it got pretty hot, to the point where you couldn't touch it. After about 2 weeks of consistent running the bearings broke in and all was good. It's been running two years strong now with no problems.

    I see this all the time on here about bearings getting hot but no one has ever put forth any evidence that it's actually damaging anything. Everyone just assumes it's doing damage.

    Sorry for the rant...

    This is probably good advice that's news to me. I've had my 10x22 for 2 years now and I have oiled the two upper ball holes maybe 3-4 times a year, but the past 6 months I noticed reduced performance after doing that! I don't have a gearbox on my machine anymore (well, it's gutted), so I only use the top oilers. According to someone's advice read on this forum a few years ago I bought a bit of straight weight non detergent oil, apparently to reduce foaming or something, and since going CNC I've just been squirting this into the spindle ball oilers. Turn the spindle on afterwards and it just seems REALLY tight, on the 2400 belt setting it'll slowly get up to around 800rpm then hang there for a while till things warm up. Usually I just put it on 720 and warm it up that way.

    But that proves that this is obviously not the best stuff to use on the spindle bearings. What are my options? Should I remove them and properly lube them with something like a lithium grease?

    Hi CR,

    How is the CNC lathe running for you?
