I'm using an old blue variant of the the Record CL3 twin bar lathe which has a tapered bronze adjustable bearing. I put a few drops of oil down the lubrication hole every time I start turning and again after a break, e.g. lunch. I'm finding that the bearing has play (I can feel it if I rock the chuck) and needs adjusting every week. Is this a normal rate of wear? I'm using the oil that came with the lathe so a I'm presuming it's the correct stuff?
