As I've stated many time, Mildred is fearless.
The hard life she's endured either makes one stronger or ends in death.
She is very much alive and stronger than ever.

You know, I looked her over again and only found the same two ball oilers I thought i remembered, both on the X table and the backside one is pert near inaccessible. I've always had to just run the table all the way to one side, oil the ways, reverse direction & do the other side. Then repeat the process for Y.
I use a long flex oiler for the screw too.
It is a messy process.

Abilene is about a 2 1/2 hour drive, 165 miles or thereabouts.
But the scenery is absolutely stunning.
