I'm looking to gather the proper lubricants for my PM935 -

I found Vactra #2 way oil at McMaster.

PM specifies an NLGI #2 grease, and found that, "Mobil 1 Synthetic Grease is an NLGI No 2, which seems to imply I could get that from a car parts store.

They also spec ISO 32 (10W oil). What do you guys use, automotive oil?

It may help if you list your exact model base rather than just 9XX so others can chime on on what they use on their machines. While the 935 may be similar to the full size 945, 949, 950, etc mills, the 932 is not a knee mill & has an oil lubricated gear head.

I get all my oils at MSC these days. Used to get them from Enco. The prices MSC gives me are not far off from what Enco used to charge. Plus I have a MSC location near me so it's great that I can just pick things up same day.

Ah, forgot about the 932. Mine is a 935, and thanks.

ISO 32 should be available at your local farm store. Buy the good stuff. (John Deere)

NLGI #2 only speaks to the rough viscosity of the grease. It says nothing about the other properties of the grease.
