The Sherline Cleanup... after months of use...

After months of abuse with actual work, various form of lubricants and grease, aluminum chips, melted plastics and so on, I decided that my mill need the much needed cleaning. I finally find the courage and the time to get it done. The mess it was in... the off-white stuff is lithium grease... yuck...The weapon... degreaser and grease pump with Slick 50 One Grease with PTFE.
The anti-seize lubricant pictured was not used.
Yeaa... after a couple of hours of soaking, scrubing, rinsing and drying... I am very pleased...
The mill ready to be put into abuse... ooopss... service again...
