The manual that came with my Laguna 20” planer talks about periodic lubrication based on hours used (shown below). So I decided to add an Hour Meter as I’d never correctly estimate/remember how much time the machine has been run.

I posted a video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/S0mO6SJ8AQM

Lubrication Schedule Repeat at the intervals indicated

Eight (8) Hours:
- Feed Roller Bushings at the Head Screws – Top of the machine
= Use a machine way oil like https://tinyurl.com/y9z8hvyc or ISO 68 Equivalent.
= 2-4 drops into the hole at the top of the 4 head screws

Twenty-Five Hundred (2500) Hours:
-Gearbox – Drain and fill plugs on the gearbox
= Drain and fill the gearbox with 80-90 wt gear oil like the following or equivalent
= https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NWWIV7W
= https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XC77795

Forty (40) Hours:
- Columns
= Use a machine way oil like https://tinyurl.com/y9z8hvyc or ISO 68 Equivalent.

- Leadscrews
= Use an NLGI#2 grease like the following or equivalent
= https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000CQ01SS/
= https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N191WZE/

One Hundred Sixty (160) Hours:
- Worm Gear – At the top of the post near the crank handle for raising and lowering the table.
= Use the same NLGI#2 grease listed above for the leadscrews

- Chains – Roller drive chains and table lift chains
= Use the same NLGI#2 grease listed above

-- Measure it with a micrometer, mark it with chalk, cut it with an axe.
