I recently purchaced a rolling mill for my bench, so I can get more
into fabricating stuff again.
I took it out of the box, and read the instruction manual… In which
it says “Remove the brown greased paper (on the rollers) and clean
with a mild degreaser.” It also instucts to use some machine oil on
it afterwords to prevent rust.
So here’s my questions - What would work as a mild degreaser? The
only “mild” degreaser I can think of is dish soap, but I’m worried
to use it as the water might make it rust.
Also would any type of machine oil work, or no? If not what type of
machine oil would you reccomend? (I have a number of tool oils around
the garrage, but I’m leaning twards heilco lube as it seems to be
pretty handy for everything. lol)
Please keep in mind that I live in florida, where the saltwater in
the air makes things rust quite easily.
Thanks for your time and any advice you can give!
