Hi I’ve realised that I have been very stupidly omitting to grease the gearbox on my Wadkin Baos 12

Ive always worried about the huge cost of replacing parts and somehow didn’t notice the gearbox on the manual which says it needs a turn a week.

Ive had the machine 2 years but lucky it has been fairly lightly used so far and sounds fine.

I greased it earlier, probably giving it 3-4 pumps, to make up for lost time.

Should the gearbox be fairly full of grease or just a bit in there and is the amount I’ve put in enough?
Thanks in advance for any help
