Default Milling Machine Spindle Oil

I needed some spindle oil (ISO 32) for the milling machines and drill presses, so I looked up some oil, from MSC, McMaster-Carr and a few other, but with shipping it came to be about $28/gal. So I called the local oil emporium, Baums Castorine in Rome, NY and pick up a 5 gallon pail for $32. As Norm says, I now have enough spindle oil for 2 life times.

I’m not sure, I usually use way oil, I find the tackifiers, keeps the spattering down................... Also gives a slight Almond taste, that works well, with the stuffing.
