I picked up a new band saw today.  It was original purchased new from barbo machinery by the father of the guy I bought it from.  He used it in a home shop so it has not seen a lot of use.  It seems to run very well.

I filled the head on the router with spindle oil, and turned the router on. It works, and I got the oil moving through the bearings correctly and then I turned it off.  And all the oil dripped out of the spindle.  There is a slight wobble to the spindle.  I don’t know if the spindle is bent or if the bearings are bad.
