I have one, they are one of the sturdier Delta lathes with tapered Timkin bearings. You can run 3 in One oil in the headstock, or any light (around 17W) oil. The basic design was used in 2 or 3 Delta models beginning with the 930 iirc. If you take the headstock apart, do so carefully, as there may be washers or shims inside.
