Hello! I got my hands on an old Gravermeister machine. The oil container is low. What type of oil is recommended for filling up this reservoir? Thanks

not sure what's specified but i always used low viscosity oil. my meister is still alive and well. the only real issue i had with it was belt wear. be sure to clean the handpiece with naphtha or such after each use.

I used a gravermeister for 30 years and always used 10 wt Valvoline motor oil. Worked great for me.

10w is the recommended oil unless it's low temperatures, then go to 20w. It's in the manual, you can get it from the GRS site, in the support section. There is also a note about using Dexron ATF if oil sludge is a problem. I use ATF in mine, without any issues. You might also need to either replace or clean the filters in the intake side. Refer to the manual for the Gravermeister noted above for more information. Great machine.
