I do appreciate the manual though. The lubrication section is particularly entertaining; the headstock takes _two gallons_ of oil.

And it should help us figure out
a. how to get the two remaining shift levers to free up and shift gears
b. whether the 1969-era analog electronics drive for the DC spindle motor is working and/or salvagable
3. how to pull the machine apart to douse all of it in evaporust and repaint it

@astraluma The apron takes another 3 pints (of a different type of oil), and the gearbox another two quarts of the same heavy medium oil that the headstock uses.

Plus there are like 25 oil points on the machine too.
