Thanks for the addition to the group. Seriously considering building a drum roaster along the lines of oldgrumpus's. Love the design and craftsmanship.

Quest M3 - front bearing lubrication
erikg
Hey there, I'd like to perform the maintenance step of oiling the front bearing on my Quest. The owner's manual states to use 1 drop of oil between the rotating and unrotating parts of the front center drum bearing. I assume I need to use a high temp food grade oil but not sure. Can someone recommend a specific product to use?

Thanks!

You might try something like this> http://www.amazon...ion-iframe

I did a search and also found lubes by Bel-Ray, Schaeffer and Amzoil that would meet your requirements.

Do you need to disassemble to clean and lube
If so a gel would be suitable
The one I use is the Inox Brand as it's also high temp rated

If not you will need a thin oil that will work its way to all contact surfaces with rotation
I did a search and found this as being most suitable http://www.belray...re-oil-220

Thanks Barry and KK! As far as I can tell, the bearing does not need to be disassembled to clean and lube. I'll check out the products that you guys posted.
