I just set up my Steel City bench morticer. This is my first morticer.
The manual didn't say anything about it, but do you have to wax or otherwise lubricate the drill bit? (to help reduce any friction between the bit and the chisel) It seems to me the potential for friction and tool wear are rather high on this type of machine.
I haven't noticed any burning or heard any loud noises yet, but I was considering some preventive maintenance.
