    Nakamura tome oiling question

    Hey guys. I have a new to me Nakamura tome TW-10 Cnc twin turret twin spindle lathe and it goes through about a liter of way oil per day.
    Is this normal? Is there a way to turn the oil pump down a little? I have another Cnc lathe that uses lithium based grease and that works great and keeps the machine clean. I am thinking of converting over to grease on all the linier rails and ball screws and putting in a smaller pump or turning down the one In the machine now. For lubing the turrets and live tooling.
    Any thoughts or comments on this conversion?
