What was the purpose of pouring swarf on the shaft ??

Possibly to demonstrate the effectiveness of the wipers in the bearing housings?

My first double post - sorry! What am I doing wrong?

Yes possibly graphite but it looks a bit chunky for that.

re double posts. I have had that when I was a little impatient and did not allow time for the post to load on the forum.


Thanks for the tip!
