Think will find many answers to your question on grease or lubricant for your reeves drive, but no brand name product. You might be better off contacting General International and ask what they recommend. They no longer make that lathe but might offer little help. Last time called those folks (early-mid 1990’s) neither lady nor man spoke to spoke English. Got call back and spoke to guy that spoke english with slight accent and very helpful.

thanks Bill. i will try giving General a call. i was surprised the manual i was able to locate has no mention of type of grease, nor the grease nipple. if i get any definitive answer, i’ll post back.

the folks at General were helpful and friendly. the tech said just to use high quality bearing grease and that there is only one grease nipple in this particular model.
