GERMAN OIL-SAVING RULES These methods of saving lubricating oils are posted in the machine shops of Germany: Use only closed oil cans, with spouts that will deliver drops, or at most only a thin stream. Use all lubricating apparatus strictly according to instructions and put the oil only where it will actually lubricate. If a machine has automatic droppers, shut off the supply while machine is standing. Do not use cylinder oil on shafting or elsewhere when cheaper oil will answer. Keep all rubbing surfaces in good condition. Rough surfaces and too tight boxes consume more oil. Worn and leaky bearings waste oil. Always use drip pans, and arrange to filter and cleanse the oil so caught. It is as good as new. Collect all greasy waste and wiping cloths, so that the oil may be recovered. Never burn them. Be careful about using lubricating oil for cooling a bearing. Water will often do as well. Be careful about using oil for cleaning and polishing. Never clean the hands with oil. A greasy cloth will do as well. Make the pay envelope a salesman for the government by printing War Savings Stamps messages on the face.
