    AL-4 Lubrication Oil Lack alarm

    Have a 1995 KT-21 lathe that I'm getting started with and just threw this alarm. I don't have any maintenance specs for the lathe-- just programming and operators manuals for the Yasnac control.

    Anyone have specs for the lubricants needed with a Hyundai/Kia from this vintage? Assume this alarm is for the way oiler at back right of the machine, and not fluid for the hydraulic pump.

    Would love info on way oil, hydraulic fluid, and if anything needs to be greased regularly (like on my old mill).

    Usually there is a placard in the machine showing lubes and required maintenance frequency. If not the stick with your standards like Vactra 2 or tonna t68. STS’s Black Ice Waylube 68 checks out between them both but as an alternative costs less.

    Best regards,
    Experience is what you get just after you needed it.

    Thank you. Had another look and found the placard. It does take a type 68 way oil. Will pick some up tonight!
